MONACO -- French driver Romain Grosjean has been handed a 10-place grid penalty for next month's Canadian Grand Prix after driving into the back of Daniel Ricciardo at the Monaco GP on Sunday.

Grosjean, who crashed in practice and in qualifying prior to the race, lost control of his Lotus coming out of the tunnel toward the end of the incident-strewn race and went straight into the Australian's Toro Rosso. The FIA said in a statement that Grosjean caused the collision.

They were among six drivers who failed to finish as the race was interrupted twice when the safety car came out and once by a red flag.

Grosjean earned a reputation for reckless driving last season and was handed a one-race ban for causing a pile up at the Spa GP.
