Liuzzi slapped with 5-grid place penalty

Vitantonio Liuzzi has been handed a five-place grid penalty for the German Grand Prix after his HRT team changed the gearbox on his car.

The Italian completed the last race at Silverstone and so was supposed to use the same gearbox for this weekend's race at the Nurburgring.

However, ahead of final free practice, HRT decided to make a change. And, with the Italian having already had his free gearbox change earlier this year, the switch means that he will be given a five-place penalty. Autosport
