Sebastian Vettel's Spanish Grand Prix weekend has taken another turn for the worst after he sustained a five place grid penalty for a gearbox change.

Vettel missed almost all of Friday's running due to an electrical problem and his Red Bull RB10 stopped on track during the opening stages of Q3.

Vettel ended the session in 10th position but will now drop five places and start from 15th on the grid.
