Daniil Kvyat will take a ten-place grid penalty for the United States Grand Prix after using a seventh power unit component of the season.

The internal combustion engine (ICE) on Kvyat's car has been replaced with a new unit, making him the first driver to use a seventh of any component.

The automatic penalty is a drop of ten places on the grid, which will be applied after qualifying. Sebastian Vettel will start from the pit lane after changing his whole power unit, while Jenson Button also has a grid penalty, with a drop of five places awaiting him after an unscheduled gearbox change.
