KTM's Pol Espargaro will start Sunday's Valencia MotoGP season finale from pit lane, with a five-second penalty.

The punishment is for exceeding the nine engine changes allowed for each of the KTM factory riders, as a new manufacturer, during the 18 round season.

The Austrian factory switched from a screamer to big-bang style engine configuration early on in their debut season.

Riders competing for manufacturers without concessions are limited to seven engine changes for the season.
