Bruno Senna's miserable Singapore GP weekend has been compounded by a five-place grid penalty after Williams confirmed they were forced to change his gearbox after his accident in qualifying.

The Brazilian, under growing pressure over his seat for 2013, had already spun out of Friday's second practice session when during the opening minutes of Q2 he broke his FW34's right-rear suspension when he smacked the wall coming round the penultimate corner of the lap.

That forced him back into the garage and out of the session, leaving him marooned in 17th on the grid. That has now become 22nd after Williams confirmed his gearbox had sustained damage in the crash.

Williams tweeted on Sunday morning: "Following damage yesterday Bruno has a 5-place penalty for replacement gearbox so will start 22nd today."

Senna's penalty means that the five drivers who qualified directly behind him - Kamui Kobayashi, Vitaly Petrov, Heikki Kovalainen, Timo Glock and Charles Pic - all move up one position apiece on the grid.
