Ferrari has spent all of its remaining Formula 1 power unit development tokens on an upgrade for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.

All teams were permitted to use 32 development ‘tokens’ through 2016 to update their power units through the season.

Ferrari has become the first team to spend its entire allocation, as confirmed in a communication from the FIA on Friday at Monza.

The upgrades coincide with the introduction of new power units for drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at Monza.

Ferrari customer team Haas will also run with the updated power units at Monza.

Honda has three tokens remaining to use this season, while Mercedes still has six banked.

Renault has used very few of its development tokens this season, still holding 21 of its initial allocation of 32.

The Italian Grand Prix is live on NBCSN and the NBC Sports app this weekend.
