Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc both took a second V6 in Spain, and their second MGU-H and turbo puts them on a par with customer Ferrari teams Haas and Alfa Romeo, whose drivers had already taken a second example.
Honda users Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly of Red Bull and Daniil Kvyat of Toro Rosso have all taken a second energy store and second control electronics.
Significantly, the change puts all three of them on the bubble for penalties, as the season limit for each item is two. Toro Rosso’s Alex Albon had already taken a second example of both, and has not changed this weekend.
As previously announced all six drivers from Mercedes, Racing Point and Williams have taken a new V6, turbo and MGU-H as the Stuttgart manufacturer introduces its Phase 2 spec.
In each case it’s the second of the three that they allowed to use per season before penalties kick in.
