Schumi hit with gearbox penalty

Michael Schumacher will start Sunday's Chinese GP 22nd on the grid after incurring a gearbox penalty.

Schumacher qualified a disappointing 18th for the grand prix due to a DRS problem in Saturday's first segment.

But, due to a penalty handed to Williams' Pastor Maldonado, was set to begin the Bahrain GP 17th on the grid.

However, due to Schumacher lowly grid slot, Mercedes reportedly opted to change his gearbox.

And any gearbox change comes with an automatic five-place grid penalty.
