Verstappen is likely to start the race in Monza from the background
Red Bull boss Christian Horner has revealed that Max Verstappen is likely to use the fourth specification of Honda's powertrain for the first time in the Italian GP race, which means the Dutchman will start the Monza race from the start of the race .
The new powertrain has already been tested in the Belgian race by Alexander Albon, while Verstappen's fourth specification will be racing for the first time this weekend in Monza.
A very likely start point penalty awaiting Verstappna in Italy has already been confirmed by Motorsport.com boss Red Bull Christian Horner:
“We will make the decision after consulting with Honda by the end of the week, but it is very likely that Max in Monza will start from the background. We are very pleased with the results of the fourth specification and the fact is that we are in any case waiting for the penalty of the starting points. This track allows for overtaking and is therefore best suited for changing the drive unit. We are aware that we will have a hard time catching Mercedes and Ferrari in the background, but certainly fifth place is a realistic result. “
