Valtteri Bottas and Esteban Gutierrez have been hit with grid penalties ahead of qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix.

The gearboxes on both the Williams and Sauber cars required replacing after problems in final practice.

The pair will now drop five places from wherever they qualify as a result.

Gearboxes are supposed to last for six events in 2014.
