Lance Stroll will drop five places on Sunday's grid after a gearbox failure during the final practice session in Brazil. The Canadian was forced to exit his car after a terrible sound spit through the rear of the Williams early on in FP3 and he lost all drive.
Stroll failed to complete a time during the 60-minute session, and his mechanics are now rushing to install a fresh gearbox into the FW40. New engine components will also be fitted, however, if they have been used before throughout the season, he will not receive further penalties.
Stroll joins the list of drivers who will drop places following qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix. Brendon Hartley has a 25-place grid penalty lingering, while his teammate Pierre Gasly also has a 25-place grid drop. Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo will drop 10 places on Sunday's grid.
