AlphaTauri's Yuki Tsunoda will be forced to start the Brazilian Grand Prix from the Formula 1 pitlane after changes were made to his car.

The Japanese racer finished the sprint race in 15th having qualified in 19th place for it, but overnight in Sao Paulo, the team have changed certain parts on his car which means he is required to forfeit that position.

While the floor has been changed on the AT03, as this is of the same specification as the previous one used, no penalty is forthcoming.

However, both the front and rear wings have been swapped for a different specification and, according to Article 40.9b of the sporting regulations, as they are not similar to the old parts, means Tsunoda must start from the pits.

His teammate Pierre Gasly will start the race from 10th place.
