Sainz's Engine "Alive"🙏, Norris Set For Grid Penalty😳

  |   F1

Carlos Sainz's Renault Formula 1 engine is "alive" after its failure last weekend but McLaren teammate Lando Norris will take a grid penalty at the Italian Grand Prix.

Sainz suffered a loss of power before the Belgian Grand Prix had even started and he managed just one lap before retiring.

Teammate Norris ran fifth for almost the entire race only to retire just as he started the last lap, having also been hit with a loss of power.

Norris will switch to a new engine at the Italian GP, which will mean he takes a grid penalty, but that was the team's plan for him at Monza anyway.

Sainz has revealed that the engine that wrecked his Belgian GP is clear to be used in practice on Friday, even though he is set to ditch it for the race weekend itself.

"We know what the problem was now," said Sainz. "The good news is the engine is alive and I will be able to re-use it tomorrow in practice and see how it goes."
