Daniil Kvyat is set to start Sunday’s Austrian Grand Prix from the pit lane after crashing out of qualifying on Saturday at the Red Bull Ring.

Kvyat was one of three drivers to suffer a suspension failure on Saturday, crashing out at the end of Q1 to leave himself 18th on the grid for the race.

However, Kvyat will now be forced to start from the pit lane after Toro Rosso rebuilt his chassis overnight before submitting the car to be re-scrutineered, having broken parc ferme conditions.

“The Stewards have received a request from Scuderia Toro Rosso to re-scrutineer car 26 which was involved in an accident in qualifying,” a statement from the stewards read.

“In accordance with Article 25.5 of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations, the Stewards agreed that this can take place on July 3rd, before the race.”

Here is the revised starting grid for the Austrian Grand Prix with all penalties applied.
