Barrichello to get five-place grid penalty

Rubens Barrichello will be given a five-place grid penalty at the Malaysian Grand Prix after needing a gearbox change following Friday's practice.
The Brazilian, who finished second in the Australian Grand Prix last weekend, did not have any apparent problems during practice, but his Brawn GP team has decided a gearbox change was necessary ahead of tomorrow's sessions.
As a result of the change, Barrichello will get a grid penalty because gearboxes must last for four grand prix weekends.
