This is ahead of Sunday’s Formula 1 race. Two drivers were penalized for ignoring the yellow flags during qualifying. The judges’ decision will be the most severe for Max Verstappen, whose chances for the world title are declining.

The Dutchman was penalized five places at the start for ignoring the double yellow flags in qualifying session. He will start from the seventh starting field. This means that the driver of Red Bull Racing will have to try very hard to improve the unfavorable position during the race. The task will be very difficult as Lewis Hamilton – Verstappen’s biggest rival – will start from pole position.

The penalty was also given to the Mercedes driver – Valtteri Bottas, who was moved three positions at the start. Carlos Sainz from Ferrari, who was also considered to be fined, got away with it. Ultimately, it didn’t.

The race at Losail will start at 3 p.m.
