Romain Grosjean's clash with Daniel Ricciardo in the Monaco Grand Prix has earned the Frenchman a 10-place grid penalty for the next Formula 1 race in Canada.
The Lotus driver ran into the back of Ricciardo's Toro Rosso on the approach to the chicane on lap 62 while trying to take 13th place.
Both cars had to retire as a result of the tangle, which caused a safety car due to the amount of debris spread over the circuit.
The incident came after Grosjean had crashed in both Thursday and Saturday practice.
Grosjean's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was also called to the Monte Carlo stewards having been caught exceeding the prescribed speed during a safety car period.
The Finn escaped with a reprimand.
Raikkonen finished 10th in the race, having run fifth until a collision with Sergio Perez's McLaren resulted in a puncture.
