Leclerc receives 10-place grid penalty at Canadian GP

Ferrari driver Charlec Leclerc has to be ten places back in the grid for the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday due to a grid penalty. The Monegask needs new electronics for its engine for the third time this season and is therefore over the allowed quota.

A grid penalty had been threatening for Leclerc for some time, who set the second fastest time behind Max Verstappen in Friday’s second training session at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. On Sunday he retired from the Azerbaijan GP with a broken engine and the same happened to him in Spain.

The Monegask, who won two of the first three races of this year and was the proud championship leader until Spain, fell back to third place after the race in Baku, 34 points behind Red Bull’s Verstappen.

“Obviously we are not in the best possible situation,” Leclerc said of the grid penalty that was hanging over his head. The driver stated that the Montreal circuit “isn’t a bad place” to receive a grid penalty, because overtaking there would be relatively easy.
