Mark Webber has become the third driver to be handed a grid penalty for the German Grand Prix after Red Bull was forced to change the gearbox in his car ahead of third practice.

The team had found an issue on his car after the second session on Friday and was forced to break the overnight curfew in order to try and resolve the problem.

Having been unable to fix the gearbox, the team has instead been forced into a change which will result in Webber taking a five place penalty after qualifying.

Romain Grosjean and Nico Rosberg will also take five place penalties this weekend for the same reason.
