Tiago Monteiro, the eighth fastest driver in free practice one, will start the first World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) race from the back of the grid on Sunday.
The Portuguese driver was administered with a grid drop penalty following Münnich Motorsport’decision to change the engine in his Honda Civic Type-R.
BRC Racing have also swapped the engine in Gabriele Tarquini’s Hyundai i30N TCR, however the Italian will not have to serve the same penalty.
The stewards have deemed the engine swap to be a case of force majeure, as it was required due to Tarquini’s first corner incident in race three at the Slovakiaring.
Two of the championship’s newest teams have also received fines for procedural errors.
Wildcard entrants, Target Competition, have been awarded a 600€ fine with a further 1800€ suspended after they were found to be ignoring the correct fire safety precautions while refuelling José Manuel Sapag’s car.
Vuković Motorsport, meanwhile, have also been fined 600€ after one of their team members was spotted smoking in the pit garage.
