Ricciardo 'faces severe grid penalty' in Canada GP

Ricciardo 'faces severe grid penalty' in Canada GP

Red Bull technical officer Adrian Newey has said that his team are preparing for a 10-place grid penalty for Daniel Ricciardo at the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday following his car's MGU-K failure during his victorious Monaco Grand Prix a few weeks ago.

Ricciardo was able to claim victory in the race despite losing 25% of his engine's power due to the faulty unit, and after changing his power unit completely in China, it was hoped thast this one could be salvaged.

But unfortunately for the Aussie, a third will need to be fitted, generating an automatic 10-place penalty, much to the disappointment of Newey and the team, and added the situation could get even worse.

He said to Reuters: ""He will definitely be taking some penalties in Montreal, we haven't heard at the moment just how many.

"One of the things there is whether the battery was damaged or not in Monaco, so until we know that from Renault we don't know exactly what we're facing. The K is definitely a penalty."

This will come as a blow for Red Bull as they look to fight their way back into title contention in both the drivers and constructors championships.
