Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton will start the Italian Grand Prix at the back because of a grid penalty for using too many engine parts.
The seven-time champion has been given his fourth power unit of the season – one more than is permitted.

Hamilton’s brand-new third engine was damaged when he crashed into Alpine’s Fernando Alonso at the Belgian Grand Prix.
Mercedes say they are still working out a “recovery plan” for the engine.
“That’s my doing,” said Hamilton. “We’re still hopeful we can use that again but I have to recover the best I can from the back.”
