Vettel hit with five-place grid penalty

– Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel will be hit with a five-place grid penalty for the Spanish Grand Prix. The reigning World Champion finished 10th in qualifying after stopping out on track with a technical problem. That issue has since been confirmed to be gearbox-related, with a change of unit required before the race.

Vettel will fall to 15th on the grid when the penalty is applied, just behind McLaren rookie Kevin Magnussen.
