Five place grid penalty for Grosjean at Hockenheim
14th July 2012
Lotus have confirmed they are going to change the gearbox on Grosjean's car ahead of next weekend's German Grand Prix.
Lotus became aware of a transmission issue on the final lap of the British GP last weekend
"It was a gearbox problem and we are very fortunate that Romain didn't have the problem earlier in the race, confirmed Lotus technical director James Allison. "Unfortunately for Romain it means he'll take a five-place grid penalty at Hockenheim, but he certainly showed at Silverstone that dropping down the order won't stop him challenging at the sharp end."
