Isack Hadjar has been penalised following the Formula 2’s third Qualifying session of the 2023 season in Melbourne.

The Hitech Pulse-Eight driver has received a three-place grid drop for impeding Roman Stanek. The Stewards determined that Hadjar impeded the Trident driver at Turns 11 and 13 with no valid mitigating factors apparent.

As a result, the Red Bull junior will now line up 10th instead of seventh for Saturday’s reverse grid Sprint Race.
