F1: British Grand Prix, Qualifying Results
Lewis Hamilton on the Pole in qualifying for the 2016 F1 British Grand Prix, 0.319 secs up on Nico Rosberg
Ferrari Team driver Sebastian Vettel will serve a 2nd successive 5-place grid penalty for a gearbox change at the British Grand Prix.
Mr. Vettel sustained a problem with the gearbox at the end of final practice at Silverstone, issuing a message over the radio in which he said: “OK, I think we failed the gearbox again.”
Ferrari has changed the gearbox as a precaution, and is to investigate the matter next week, but it means Mr. Vettel will again drop 5 places for Sunday’s race.
Prior to the Austrian Grand Prix Ferrari had to change the gearbox Friday as it discovered an issue it felt could have resulted in a failure.
Although no problems were encountered during the prior European Grand Prix in Azerbaijan, where Mr. Vettel finished 2nd behind MercedesAMG’ Nico Rosberg, an investigation of the car’s systems found a potential issue.
