Charles Leclerc has been handed a further grid penalty for the Canadian Grand Prix, which means that he will start the race from the back of the grid.

The Ferrari driver had already been given a 10-place grid drop on Friday, with the team having changed the control electronics (CE) of his car. This was his third, which took him beyond the allotted amount of two per season.

Now FIA documents have confirmed that Leclerc has taken a new internal combustion engine (ICE) for the remainder of the weekend, his fourth of the campaign. With this being over the designated three per season, Leclerc has been given another penalty.

His F1-75 has also been fitted with a new turbocharger (TC), which is again beyond the allotted amount of three per season.

Additionally, the car will run a new motor generator unit-heat (MGU-H), motor generator unit-kinetic (MGU-K) and exhaust system (EX).

On the other side of the garage, Carlos Sainz will run a new ICE, but will not receive a penalty due to this being within his permitted allocation per campaign.
