Red Bull will be unable to use the second Honda engine of both Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez after the Japanese manufacturer confirmed the news.
Teams are allowed to use three power units per season and replace two of them without facing a grid penalty. However, Honda confirmed with RacingNews365.com that both Verstappen and Perez have lost the second of their three engines due to irreparable damage.
The Dutchman's damage stems from his collision with Lewis Hamilton at the British GP that saw him crash out of the lead on Lap 1, while Perez's damage was suffered at the first corner in Hungary that saw him retire and the race red-flagged.
This news means that both Red Bull drivers are now on their third and final engine for the season with 12 races currently remaining. Any further changes will result in a grid penalty.
