It was announced before qualifying yesterday that a gearbox change on Kimi Raikkonen’s car means he will start the Monaco Grand Prix five places down on his qualifying position.

Ferrari had to replace the gearbox after detecting an issue in final practice, incurring a five-place grid penalty under the regulations that will prove costly on the tight streets of Monaco.

Raikkonen finished ninth overall in final practice and was nearly a second off team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

Raikkonen reported that his gearbox was slipping into neutral during the session.
