Jules Bianchi is set for a five-place grid penalty at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix because of a gearbox change.
The Frenchman glanced the barriers at Turn 2 following a spin in his Marussia during the final free practice session at the Yas Marina circuit.
Although there was not much damage caused in the incident, the crash has forced a gearbox change.
As the new unit is being fitted before his old gearbox has completed the mandatory five race events, Bianchi will be moved back five places on the grid.
