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.

Lance Stroll 4 4 4 4 2 2

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.
