Motorsport: Sergio Perez handed a grid penalty for the Spanish Grand Prix

# Motorsport: Red Bull’s Sergio Perez has been hit with a three-place grid penalty for next weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. The Mexican had spun off on Lap 53 of the Canadian Grand Prix and damaged his rear wing, before managing to limp back to the pit lane and retire the car. The stewards determined that as well as a financial penalty for the team, a sporting penalty for Perez is necessary due to the safety implications of the incident.
