Romain Grosjean is set for a five place grid penalty at this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix after Lotus elected to change the gearbox in his Lotus E23 Hybrid.

Grosjean stopped on track at the end of the second session at Spa Francorchamps and overnight Lotus mechanics have replaced his gearbox.

The technical delegate's report issued on Saturday morning confirmed that as Grosjean finished the most recent race and has not used the gearbox for six consecutive events, he has contravened Article 28.6a of the sporting regulations.
