Nico Hulkenberg to take gearbox penalty

Nico Hulkenberg will be going into this weekends qualifying session knowing that he will have to take a five-place grid penalty for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Renault driver has suffered a similar fate to Lewis Hamilton at the Austrian GP, where he changed his gearbox out of sequence.

As a result he will start from five places from where he qualifies today, while team mate Jolyon Palmer looks to have escaped any gearbox penalties despite crashing his car rather heavily at the rear towards the end of Practice 2 yesterday.
