Manor duo set for grid penalties

Manor duo Will Stevens and Alexander Rossi will have five-place grid penalties at the Singapore Grand Prix for gearbox changes.

Both drivers hit the wall during Friday's free practice sessions at the Marina Bay circuit, suffering damage to their gearboxes.

The team elected on Friday night to make changes to both units, which had not yet done the mandatory six events they are supposed to.

It means the pair will likely secure the back row of the grid, with none of their rivals taking the engine changes that have blighted the starting order at recent grands prix.
