MONZA (AFP) – Red Bull’s championship leader Max Verstappen was handed a three-place grid penalty for his role in the frightening crash with Lewis Hamilton in Sunday’s (Sept 12) Italian Grand Prix, the stewards at Monza announced.

The Dutch driver was “predominantly to blame” for the incident that wiped him and his Mercedes rival out of the race won by McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo, a statement read.

The penalty will be applied at the Russian Grand Prix in a fortnight’s time.
