Giedo van der Garde has been issued with a five-place grid penalty after causing a crash with Nico Hulkenberg at the Canadian Grand Prix.

Caterham racer Giedo van der Garde has been handed a five-place grid penalty for the British Grand Prix after being deemed to blame for a crash with Nico Hulkenberg in Montreal.

The duo collided when the German was looking to lap Van der Garde on the final chicane on lap 46 before the Dutchman broke his front-wing against the Sauber's left-rear tyre causing both cars to retire.

Van der Garde, who had earlier been penalised with a drive-through penalty for colliding with Mark Webber, will now face a punishment at Silverstone in the next race.

An FIA statement read: "Car 21 [Van der Garde] was given blue flags for a full lap. Car 11 [Hulkenberg] had to use DRS and full KERS in order to overtake a lapped car."

The British Grand Prix takes place on June 30.
