Mark Webber will drop five places on the grid for Sunday’s 2012 Formula 1 Shell Belgian Grand Prix thanks to an unscheduled gearbox change on his Red Bull.

It means Webber, currently second in the driver standings to Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, will start the Spa-Francorchamps race no higher than sixth, even if he qualifies fastest on Saturday.

Formula One regulations require gearboxes to last five successive Grands Prix.
