F1 News: Charles Leclerc 10-Place Grid Penalty Confirmed

It’s been confirmed that Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc will suffer from a ten-place grid penalty this weekend at the Canadian Grand Prix. After a number of retirements for the driver due to power unit issues, Ferrari will be replacing parts of his engine that has led to the penalty.

Chris Medland, F1 journalist and presenter, confirms this on Twitter:

It’s expected that the driver’s car will also receive a new turbo, which would mean Charles would start at the back of the pack whatever his qualifying results may be.

With him quickly losing points to current leader Max Verstappen, this is another blow for Charles who earlier this season was looking to be in good stead for the championship. Hopefully we’ll see him push up the grid this coming Sunday.
