Nico Rosberg has been slapped with a five-place grid penalty for the Belgian Grand Prix after his team was forced to change his gearbox ahead of today’s qualifying session.
The gearbox was changed was it failed following Saturday’s final practice session, and with the unit not having lasted the mandatory four races, it means he will line up five places lower than where he is able to qualify.
Team-mate Michael Schumacher already has a 10-place grid penalty for his antics at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
