Insomniac,


"Each driver may use no more than one gearbox for five consecutive events. Every unscheduled gearbox change will require the driver to drop five places on the grid"

I would not like to see Alonzo be displaced because
of faulty gearbox problem.. If true this could really inpack the
race on Sunday..The Fans loose out again because this silly rule..

28.6 For the purposes of this Article only, an Event will be deemed to comprise P3, the qualifying practice session and the race.

a) Each driver may use no more than one gearbox for five consecutive Events in which his team competes.

So, I was right. Alonso will receive no penalty.

Ferrari was using one of the older(used for 5 races already)gearbox for Friday practice, so no penalty there. Same thing with the engines(already ran 2 races) used on every FP1 and FP2. And since Alonso retired last race at Spa, he's allowed to have a new gearbox without penalty.
