AlphaTauri replaces gearbox of both cars; Kvyat the unlucky one

During the Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring it wasn't a great weekend for AlphaTauri and the mechanical malheur it was struggling with then seems to continue now. However, this time it is Daniil Kvyat who suffers.

During the weekend in Hungary it was Pierre Gasly who first had to miss a training session due to problems with the Honda power source and during qualifying this happened again.

Five places penalty for Kvyat

The fact that technical problems in the current Formula 1 have a quick impact on subsequent GP's is evident on the Silverstone circuit. AlphaTauri will give both drivers a new gearbox for this weekend.

For Gasly this doesn't mean much, because he didn't finish the race in Hungary. However, Kvyat did and because less than six Grands Prix have passed, the Russian will get five places penalty for next Sunday's race.
