Hungarian GP

Pit lane start for Marcus Ericsson

As one of the drivers that felt the full force of the conditions yesterday, Marcus Ericsson’s crash in qualifying has forced him to start from the pit lane for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Swede crashed at turn 10 in the first part of qualifying, a corner in which Rio Haryanto also crashed during the same session. Crashing heavily into the barrier damaging the front suspension has necessitated a chassis change, and will use the very chassis teammate Felipe Nasr neglected earlier in the season with a balance problem.

A pit lane start means they can also change wing levels and other set up changes, along with a change of strategy.
