Serial crash-artist Frenchman Romain Grosjean was on Sunday handed a 10-place grid penalty for next month's Canadian Grand Prix.

The Lotus driver rammed into the back of Australian Daniel Ricciardo's Toro Rosso during the Monaco Grand Prix.

The crash forced both men and their cars to retire from the race and triggered a second Safety Car intervention.

Grosjean also crashed on Thursday and Saturday and damaged his car in every session of the weekend.

The Monaco race stewards made their decision to punish Grosjean but allowed his Lotus team-mate Finn Kimi Raikkonen to escape with a reprimand for speeding under the Safety Car.
