Ricciardo summoned before stewards for MGU-K rules breach

Marina Bay, Singapore

Singapore Grand Prix – Renault have had a summons issued on them for a breach of the MGU-K power rules on Daniel Ricciardo’s car.

Renault have been served with a summons for a breach of power regulations during qualifying.

A team representative has been summoned before race stewards in Singapore, hours after qualifying, after a power usage breach was detected on his car.

The summons says that there was an ” Alleged breach of Article 5.2.2 of the FIA Formula One Technical Regulations, car 3, driver Daniel Ricciardo, exceeded the MGU-K power limit of 120 kW during Qualifying 1.”

The representative must report to the stewards at 01:10 local time.

If found guilty, Renault could face expulsion from qualifying on Ricciardo’s side of the garage, potentially meaning a back of the grid or pitlane start for the Australian driver.

Ricciardo qualified in P8 on Saturday evening, pipping teammate Nico Hulkenberg by a tenth of a second with both Renault drivers getting into Q3 once again.
