Bottas and Gutierrez handed grid penalties

15 Mar 2014

Williams’ Valtteri Bottas and Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez will both drop five places on the grid in Australia following gearbox changes.

The 2014 regulations specify that gearboxes must last for six consecutive events, however after hitting trouble in Saturday’s final practice session in Melbourne, both drivers were forced to make an earlier than permitted change.
