Charles Leclerc has been handed a 10-place grid penalty for the Canadian GP after control electronics replacement.

After Leclerc’s power unit got damage beyond repair at the Azerbaijan GP, the Monegasque received new internal combustion engine, MGU-H, MGU-K, and control electronics for the race weekend in Canada. He avoided grid penalty as none of the components exceeded the limit.

However, it was confirmed after FP2 that Leclerc got another control electronics. It was his third of the year, which implied that the Ferrari driver would be given a 10-place grid drop for Sunday’s race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
