Daniel Ricciardo will start Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix from the back of the grid after taking a complete new power unit ahead of the race, triggering a penalty.

Ricciardo qualified 18th for Renault on Saturday after losing his final push lap in Q1 in a scrap with Sergio Perez, prompting the team to take advantage of his low starting position to gain additional parts for the remainder of the season.

Ricciardo's car has a new engine, MGU-K, MGU-H, turbocharger, control electronics and energy store ahead of the race, all of which are added to the pool for the remainder of the season.

Ricciardo's penalty will lift Lance Stroll off the last row of the grid, with Robert Kubica moving up to P19.
