Marcus Ericsson to take a 10-place grid penalty for new Turbo Charger

Marcus Ericsson will be taking a 10-place grid penalty because he will take his sixth Turbo Charger this weekend.

This will be the first Power Unit-releated penalty for Ericsson this year, with him likely to join Lewis Hamilton towards the rear of the field who will also take a grid penalty due to taking his sixth Power Unit elements this weekend.

Sauber head into this weekends race having brought aero updates, notably to their front wing which looks re-worked in areas. The team have still yet to score points in 2016, which puts them last in the constructors championship after Manor managed to pick up points in Monaco with Pascal Wehrlein.

After securing new investors before the summer break however, the future has started to look bright for the Swiss team as they look to get back into fighting for points in the mid-field.
