AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda is set to start Formula 1’s Mexico City Grand Prix from the back of the grid after taking a fresh power unit.

The FIA confirmed on Friday that Tsunoda has taken on a new version of each of the six components that comprise the power unit.

As a consequence he is set to start Sunday’s race from last position.

AlphaTauri holds last in the Constructors’ Championship but closed to within two points of Haas after Tsunoda registered its best finish of the campaign in Austin.

Tsunoda scored eighth place – following the disqualifications of Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc – and also picked up a bonus point for setting the fastest lap.

Tsunoda did not take part in the opening practice session in Mexico City after AlphaTauri elected to put Isack Hadjar in the AT04 to fulfil one of its two rookie sessions.
