The Hungarian GP is the eleventh race of the 2017 season, and teams are starting to eat into their allowed inventory of power unit components.

As a reminder, under current regulations, drivers are permitted to use only four of each of the six elements that make up the power unit before grid penalties are imposed.

The first time a fifth element is used, a 10-place grid penalty will be imposed, with a five-place drop imposed the first time a fifth of any of the remaining elements is used.

The first time a sixth element is used, a 10-place grid penalty will be applied.

Looking at the allocation below, discarding McLaren which has blown way past its allowed number of elements, Ferrari, Haas and Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo are one element short of a grid penalty, while Renault's Jolyon Palmer is also at risk of a relegation.
