Charles Leclerc will take a grid penalty for the Canadian Grand Prix due to his car being fitted with a new control electronics (CE) for the remainder of the weekend.

An FIA Technical Delegate's Report confirms the change, with a note adding: "The control electronics used by Charles Leclerc is the third of the two new control electronics allowed for the 2022 Championship season and this is not in conformity with Article 28.2 of the 2022 Formula One Sporting Regulations."

This means that Leclerc will serve a 10-place grid penalty.

Will there be further changes on Leclerc's car?

It had previously been confirmed that Leclerc would take a new power unit in Montreal, but that this would be his third of the campaign, the maximum allowed before a penalty is issued.

FIA documents confirmed that Leclerc had taken on a new internal combustion engine, MGU-K and MGU-H for the weekend, but not yet a turbo.

This means that there could be further penalties if the team opt to change this part too.

The Monegasque finished Free Practice 1 in P5, but improved to second in FP2.
