Rosberg handed grid penalty as well
1 September 2012 – Nico Rosberg is the second driver to receive a five-place grid drop ahead of qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix. This follows a gearbox change after final practice.
In Saturday's final practice session and the first dry period of the weekend, Rosberg lost crucial time as his Mercedes became jammed in sixth gear just ten minutes in.
Mark Webber, Fernando Alonso’s closest challenger atop the championship table, will also be falling back by five places for his second gearbox change in three races.
