Grosjean gets five-place grid drop for gearbox change

Romain Grosjean is set for a five-place grid penalty following a gearbox change ahead of final practice for the Belgian Grand Prix.

The Lotus driver finished the last race in Hungary so the change of gearbox, which comes before the mandatory six events it must last, will result in a grid drop.

Grosjean was also reprimanded on Friday for having driven unnecessarily slowly and blocking Nico Hulkenberg during second practice on the entry to the chicane.

It is Grosjean's first reprimand of the season.
