Charles Leclerc Dealt 10-Place Grid Penalty for F1’s Canadian GP

Charles Leclerc has been handed a 10-place grid penalty after a new control electronics was added to his car, his third of the season and one over the 2022 limit.

The question remains as to whether he could continue to drop spots on the grid during Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix. Ferrari confirmed that the rising star’s engine in last week’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix was “beyond repair” earlier on Friday. If the team adds more power unit components on Saturday, could he endure another penalty?

According to BBC earlier on Friday, the team added a new internal combustion engine, MGU-K and MGU-H, but they opted against the turbo.
