Epson, England - Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo will have a grid penalty for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix after winning in Monaco with a damaged power unit, technical head Adrian Newey said on Monday.
Newey said at a Motorsport Hall of Fame awards event that a penalty of some sort was inevitable for the Australian, who is third in the championship behind Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.
The top three have each won two races this season, but Ricciardo is 38 points off Hamilton's lead due to reliability issues and a collision with team-mate Max Verstappen in Azerbaijan.
"He will definitely be taking some penalties in Montreal, we haven't heard at the moment just how many," Newey said. "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," added Newey, referring to the MGU-K, the motor generator unit that recovers the energy generated while braking.
