Yuki Tsunoda has become the first driver within the Red Bull Powertrains camp to use a fourth power unit in 2022, meaning that he will start the Canadian Grand Prix from the back of the grid.

The AlphaTauri driver has had all parts of his engine replaced and, having now exceeded the allotted amount per campaign, has to line up at the rear of the field for Sunday's race in Montreal.

Tsunoda is not the only driver to change some engine components in Montreal, though.

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc has also had several parts – including the combustion engine – changed after an engine failure at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

However, this is still within the permitted number of three components, meaning that the man currently third in the World Championship standings will not receive a grid penalty.

Esteban Ocon, Kevin Magnussen and Nicholas Latifi have also had some engine-related parts changed, but will not receive penalties.
