12 October, 2012
Drivers are allowed eight engines for the 20 race championship but Pic will be using his ninth, incurring an automatic penalty.
“We plan to fit a new engine to Charles’ car this evening in the knowledge that, as his ninth engine of the season, we will incur a 10-place grid penalty on Sunday,” team principal John Booth said in a statement.
Pic has not qualified higher than 19th on the 24 car F1 grid so far this season.
