Monaco Grand Prix: Ericsson given penalty for collision with Nasr

Marcus Ericsson has been given a three-place grid penalty for the Canadian Grand Prix after colliding with Sauber Formula 1 team-mate Felipe Nasr in Monaco

Monaco Grand Prix: Ericsson given penalty for collision with Nasr

Sauber had urged Nasr to let Ericsson past for 15th place as they both chased Pascal Wehrlein and Romain Grosjean in the middle of the Monaco race.

Nasr rejected the suggestion and Ericsson then tried a pass into Rascasse that succeeded only in damaging both cars and forcing their eventual retirement.

In addition to the three-place penalty for Montreal, Ericsson also receives two penalty points on his licence, taking his current tally to six.

The stewards have also given Wehrlein four penalty points in total - two for going too fast during a virtual safety car period and two for ignoring blue flags - plus a pair of 10-second time penalties for the offences.

The officials will be talking to Daniil Kvyat and Kevin Magnussen about their collision early in the race and to Kimi Raikkonen for his messy end to the grand prix.

The Finn crashed at the hairpin, getting his front wing stuck under his car in the process.

Struggling to steer, he then almost put Romain Grosjean's Haas into the wall at the following corner, and he then drove his broken car through the tunnel at low speed, with the front wing still under his front wheels before he pulled off the circuit at the chicane.
