F1 German Grand Prix: Grosjean suffers grid penalty

Romain Grosjean's miserable German F1 Grand Prix weekend has got worse as his Haas requires a gearbox change for qualifying.
Romain Grosjean will start the German Grand Prix five-positions lower than where he qualifies after suffering a gearbox problem in final free practice.

The Haas driver completed just four laps before the VF16 hit issues in the final session before qualifying, with the American team since confirming he will have to undergo a change.

As a result, Grosjean will take a five-place grid penalty for the first German Grand Prix since 2014 at the Hockenheimring.

The news only adds to a frustrating start to the weekend for the Frenchman, who struggled with his brakes on day one, and suffered a grassy off in FP3 at the point where his gearbox failed.
