For the second time in three races, Mark Webber will drop five places from his qualifying position courtesy of a penalty for a gearbox change.

Webber was given the same penalty prior to the German Grand Prix, meaning that the gearbox has only lasted for two events.

"The above driver [Webber] did finish the last race in Budapest and this gearbox change was before the five consecutive events expired" read a statement late on Friday.
