Charles Leclerc will now start from the back of the grid in Canada after taking a complete new Ferrari power unit.
The Monegasque driver was already facing a 10-place grid drop heading into qualifying, a third new Control Electronics of the season taking him over the limit for that component and triggering the penalty.
Leclerc’s Baku engine which failed on race day is “beyond repair”, so rather than lose 10 places on the grid, Ferrari decided to give Leclerc a completely new PU, confirming his slide to the back of the pack.
In total, Leclerc takes a new Internal Combustion Engine, Turbocharger, MGU-H, MGU-K and Exhaust in addition to that new Control Electronics.
Carlos Sainz also received a new Ferrari ICE, this third of the season, so avoids a grid penalty.
