The Frenchman, whose third practice session ended in a spin that sent him into the gravel just 12 minutes in, has needed to install a new gearbox after FP3.

As it was changed before six consecutive races, the Haas driver will be penalised for the change.

The penalty is a blow to Grosjean's chances, the Frenchman having looked strong in the first two practice sessions.
