MONTREAL, Canada - Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado has collected another five-place grid penalty, this time for the 2012 Canadian F1 GP.

The Williams team had to change his gearbox, making this the young driver’s third penalty in the two races since his stunning victory in the 2012 Spanish GP in May.

In Monaco, two weeks earlier, Maldonado was handed a 10-place penalty for causing a collision in final practice and then picked up another five-place demotion for an unscheduled gearbox change as a result of that impact.
He damaged his gearbox in Montreal when he lost control of the car through the last corner and hit the notorious "Wall of Champions” during qualifying. Without the accident, he might have been in the top 10.

After starting on pole in Barcelona, the Venezuelan was 24th on the grid in Monaco and will line up 22nd in Montreal.
