Max Verstappen will have an almost brand new Red Bull-Honda for the rest of the weekend. All six parts of his power unit and the exhaust were replaced before the start of the second training session.
It didn’t stop there, because Red Bull also replaced the Dutchman’s gearbox. There was no extra grid penalty for this, as drivers who did not make it to the finish in the previous race are allowed to change their gearbox with impunity.
For that reason, the Mercedes team replaced Lewis Hamilton’s gearbox and Pierre Gasly also has a new gearbox.
