Canadian Lance Stroll (Aston Martin), who was to start in 17th position in the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday (9:00 p.m. French), will finally start from the pit lane, the FIA said.
His team has in fact changed several parts on its car since Saturday's qualifying, thus breaking the parc ferme rules and receiving the usual sanction for this type of infraction.
Like last weekend during the United States GP in Austin, Stroll, who celebrates his 25th birthday on Sunday, will therefore start last at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
In Texas, that did not prevent him from finishing ninth and even finally climbing to seventh place after the disqualifications of the Briton Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) and the Monegasque Charles Leclerc (Ferrari), who will start in pole position on Sunday in Mexico.
After a thunderous start to the season, the Aston Martin team, which has won seven podiums this year thanks to Spanish veteran Fernando Alonso, has been going through a difficult period for several weeks and has just fallen to fifth place in the constructors' standings after being overtaken by McLaren.
