Five place grid penalty for Rosberg

Nico Rosberg joins Mark Webber with a five place penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change after suffering a failure in the final session of free practice.

The Chinese GP winner ground to a halt out on the circuit early in Saturday morning's FP3, the only dry running available to drivers ahead of qualifying after both Friday sessions were washed out by heavy rain.

Rosberg will therefore be faced with qualifying a largely untried car and then demoted a further five places on the grid.
