Following the conclusion of Qualifying in Jeddah, two drivers have received grid penalties ahead of Saturday’s Sprint Race.

Trident’s Roman Stanek and Clément Novalak have both been handed five-place grid penalties. Race Stewards found that Trident mechanics failed to hand back both drivers’ set of tyres into parc fermé following the conclusion of Qualifying. Team personnel were also found to have worked on the sets of tyres before handing them in, breaching the Sporting Regulations.

The penalties move Novalak down to 16th and Stanek down to P21.
