Monaco GP: Jules Bianchi hit with gearbox penalty

bianchi

Jules Bianchi will start the Monaco Grand Prix from the back of the grid following a gearbox change on Sunday.

The Marussia driver had qualified 19th, but the team discovered an issue with his gearbox last night.

With the team worried that the problem could cause a retirement, it has elected to change the gearbox - which will give him a five place penalty.

Bianchi will line up 21st on the grid, because Marcus Ericsson has to start from the pit lane after being punished for his involvement in a qualifying crash with Felipe Massa.
