Jolyon Palmer has been given permission to start the race in Mexico, after being unable to participate in qualifying due to a damaged car. He'll line up last on the grid, with Romain Grosjean having to start from the pit lane. The Haas driver has had the floor of his Haas car changed after struggling all weekend with balance.

The team have been on the back foot for a couple of weekends now, particularly last weekend at their home race, and once again here in Mexico.
