Nico Hulkenberg will take a five-place grid penalty for the British Grand Prix after his Force India team elected to change the gearbox on his car.
The German finished in fifth place in Valencia a fortnight ago but his team found a problem with his gearbox after the event.
The unit was changed ahead of final practice at Silverstone, which means he will be given a mandatory five-place grid penalty after qualifying.
