Esteban Ocon has been slapped with a 10-second time penalty ahead of Saturday's Miami Sprint race, following a pit-lane incident.

The Alpine driver received the time penalty which will be added to his finishing time after crashing into the side of Charles Leclerc when exiting his garage.

Ocon required a new front-wing following the incident, which turns the second sprint race of 2024 into more of a test.

He will start from P13 whilst Leclerc qualified on the front row alongside Max Verstappen.
