Both Daniel Riccciardo and Daniil Kvyat will start towards the back of the grid for Red Bull's home Austrian Grand Prix after the team confirmed the drivers will take an engine change.

Having hinted as much in the press conference ahead of the event at the Red Bull Ring, Ricciardo will indeed take a fifth Renault power unit having persevered with his fourth and final engine since the Spanish Grand Prix.

However, in a double blow for the local team, Kvyat will also take on a fifth engine, which is destined to leave both rooted towards the back of the grid for the event. Following Max Verstappen's penalty in Canada, only Carlos Sainz is yet to take a Renault-related engine penalty.
