Senna crashed in Q2 at the Marina Bay circuit. The impact with the wall damaged the gearbox enough for it to need to be replaced.

Williams changed it on Saturday night and the FIA confirmed that the replacement is a breach of the technical regulations that requires gearboxes to last five races.

Senna will now start 22nd, having originally qualified 17th.
