Mark Webber will drop five grid positions for the start of Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix. Following second practice on Friday, Red Bull technicians discovered a problem with the gearbox of the Australian’s car, forcing them to change the part.
In an initiative to keep costs down, each driver is permitted one gearbox for the course of five consecutive Grand Prix weekends. Should it have to be changed at any point during that interim, the customary five-place punishment will come into action.
As a result of the work which had to be done, Red Bull broke the curfew on Friday night. This prevents those who work directly with the cars from remaining within the confines of the circuit after a set time; however, teams are allowed four exceptions per season.
