Clarified by "Any driver who failed to finish the race at the first, second, third or fourth of the five Events for reasons which the technical delegate accepts as being beyond the control of the team or driver, may start the following Event with a different gearbox without a penalty being incurred."
So, yes - square tyres, no free gearbox. If the gearbox decides to drop to pieces, free gearbox but with the same ratios as the dead one.
I guess it is possible for a car to have 20 gearboxes in a season if the box fails during every race as there is no limit on number.
