Less than two hours before the start of the race for the Qatar Grand Prix, the commissioners awarded penalties for offenses in the last part of the qualifications. Valtteri Bottas was the first to be penalized, he was third in the qualifiers, but he will lose three starting places, and he will start the race from the fifth place, as Max Verstappen was also punished, who would otherwise start the race from the second place.

Carlos Sainz managed to avoid punishment.

The pitch contestant’s pitch was hailed by Lewis Hamilton, who says: “Consistency is key. In Austria, I lost three places because of one yellow flag I didn’t see. It is right to stick to the rules. Today we just have to focus on our work. ”

Hamilton will therefore start the race in first place, with third Red Bull racer Pierre Gasly (Alpha Tauri) standing next to him, while Fernando Alonso will advance to third place.
