Kimi Raikkonen set to start from pit lane at Spa after rear wing change


Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen will start the Belgian Grand Prix from the pit lane after his team changed parts under Parc Ferme conditions.

Raikkonen qualified 18th for the race at Spa but will start from the pits because his team changed the rear wing assembly of his car under Parc Ferme conditions.

“The part has been replaced with the approval of the FIA technical delegate following a written request from the team concerned… But as the above part is different from the one originally used, car number 07 should now be required to start from the pit lane,” read FIA F1 Technical Delegate Jo Bauer’s report.

McLaren’s Lando Norris received a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change after his qualifying crash while Valtteri Bottas and Lance Stroll have also taken five-place penalties for their roles in the Lap 1 crashes in Hungary.
