Charles Leclerc will start Sunday’s Canadian GP from the back of the grid after new power unit elements were installed on his car.

It was confirmed after FP2 that Leclerc had been given 10-place grid penalty after a control electronics replacement.

During FP3, it was announced that the Monegasque had received a new internal combustion engine, MGU-H, MGU-K, and turbo. The limit of the components was exceeded and Leclerc therefore would start the race from the rear.

Leclerc would join Yuki Tsunoda, who had taken a new PU at the start of the weekend, on the tenth row.
