Daniel Ricciardo has been hit with a three-place grid penalty for the Spanish Grand Prix after reversing into Daniil Kvyat's car during Sunday's race in Azerbaijan.

Ricciardo and Kvyat both took to the run-off area at Turn 4 after locking up while fighting for position, with Ricciardo attempting to try and back out onto the track by reversing.

However, Ricciardo drove his Renault straight into the path of Kvyat's Toro Rosso, leaving both cars with damage that would ultimately force both drivers to retire from the race.

The stewards looked dimly on the incident, confirming after the race that Ricciardo had received a three-place grid penalty for causing a collision.

Ricciardo also picks up two penalty points on his FIA Super License, which are his first for this 12-month period.
