McLaren’s Oscar Piastri was handed a three-place grid drop for impeding in qualifying for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on Saturday, dropping the Australian from the front row for Sunday’s race to fifth.

The penalty imposed by stewards means team mate Lando Norris, winner of the previous race in Miami, moves up alongside Red Bull’s polesitter and championship leader Max Verstappen.

Charles Leclerc will start third and team mate Carlos Sainz fourth in an all-Ferrari second row.
