Massa gets gearbox penalty promoting Alonso

Felipe Massa has been handed a five place grid penalty for the US Grand Prix after Ferrari broke the seal on his gearbox in order to promote Fernando Alonso to the clean side of the grid.

Alonso will now start from seventh and the clean side of the grid whilst Massa will start from 11th.

It has been predicted that starting from the ‘dirty’ side of the grid could lose drivers up to two places at the start of the race.
