Sergio Perez will take a five-place grid penalty for the Singapore Grand Prix as Racing Point will fit a new gearbox to his crashed Formula 1 car ahead of qualifying.
The Racing Point driver clouted the wall with the right-hand side of his car at the exit of the final chicane during the final free practice session.
The debris which littered the track from Perez's car brought out the session's only red flag.
Following an inspection of his machine in the garage, Racing Point realised that Perez's gearbox could not be used again so a new one is to be fitted.
It means he will take a grid drop later on.
"After our inspection we found some damage so we had to change it," sporting director Andy Stevenson told Autosport.
Racing Point has introduced a major upgrade for this weekend's Marina Bay race, as it sets its sights on ending the year with the fourth quickest car.
