Rosberg penalised following gearbox change


Nico Rosberg will forfeit five grid places on the grid tomorrow after his team opted to change the gearbox on his car ahead of this afternoon's session.

The old unit, which had not completed the mandatory four races, was changed following this morning's free practice session when the German team detected an unspecified issue.

Teammate Michael Schumacher had already incurred a ten-place grid penalty as a result of the incident with Rubens Barrichello in Hungary.
