Cape Town - Romain Grosjean faces a five-place grid penalty following a gearbox change in the wake of final practice at Monza.

The Frenchman was on his fourth lap of FP3 when a mistake left him stranded in the gravel.

Grosjean hit the inside kerb at Ascari, which pitched his VF16 into a spin and into the gravel.

As a result he faces an automatic five-place grid penalty.
