New engine and gearbox for Vettel

Sebastian Vettel will line up on the Singapore Grand Prix grid with a new engine and gearbox following his qualifying mishap.

The Ferrari driver qualified slowest of all on Saturday night after a right-rear suspension link broke putting his front left wheel into the air.

Already at the back of the field, Ferrari decided to change both his engine and gearbox.

As the German was onto his fifth Internal Combustion Engine, Turbo Charger and MGU-H components this means he has been able to take his sixth without the penalty having any impact.

Vettel incurred a 20-place penalty for the engine change and a further five for taking a new gearbox.
