Updated Russian GP grid

There are two changes to this weekend’s Russian Grand Prix grid with Carlos Sainz and Stoffel Vandoorne penalised.

Sainz arrived in Sochi aware of his grid penalty as he was handed a three-place drop by the Bahrain stewards for causing a collision with Lance Stroll.

As for Vandoorne, he was hit with his penalty on Friday as a MGH-K issue forced McLaren-Honda into a full engine change.

Moving onto his fifth MGU-H and turbocharged, he racked up a 15-place penalty and will start the Russian GP from the very back of the grid.
