Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson and Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat will receive grid penalties at the next race in Canada for their respective crashes during the Monaco Grand Prix. 

Ericsson controversially collided with his teammate Felipe Nasr in the closing stages of the race, after team orders towards Nasr weren’t obeyed. Ericsson attempted to dive on the inside of the Brazilian into La Rascasse and crashed into the side of his Sauber teammate.

Both drivers retired from the race due to excessive damage to their cars.

Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat was attempting to unlap himself by passing Renault’s Kevin Magnussen through the swimming pool complex. The Russian had been trying for multiple laps but couldn’t find a way through, until he tried a move after the swimming pool and hit the side of the Dane, sending them towards the wall at La Rascasse.

Both drivers will receive a three-place grid penalty for the Canadian Grand Prix in a fortnight.
