Sergio Perez will lose five places on the grid for the Australian Grand Prix after a gearbox change following qualifying.
The Sauber driver qualified in 17th position after he was unable to complete a timed lap in Q2 due to a problem with his car's gearbox.
Sauber has been forced to replace the faulty gearbox, meaning Perez will drop down to 22nd on the grid for tomorrow's race.
