Vettel drops to 15th on grid thanks to gearbox penalty

Sebastain Vettel is set to drop from 10th to 15th on the Spanish GP grid thanks to a gearbox change penalty.

The German lost second gear as he accelerated out of the pits at the start of Q3, and then lost all his gears by the time he got to Turn One.

Although teams can replace damaged components under parc ferme rules the team clearly decided that it would be a safer plan to change the whole thing and take the penalty.

Those who move up a place are Nico Hulkenberg, Sergio Perez, Daniil Kvyat, Esteban Gutierrez and Kevin Magnussen.
