Giedo van der Garde has been hit with a second grid penalty for today’s British Grand Prix after Caterham replaced part of his gearbox on Sunday morning.

The Dutch driver had qualified P21, but a penalty carried over from the Canadian Grand Prix for causing an avoidable incident with Mark Webber saw him fall to last. However, Paul di Resta was excluded from qualifying after his car was found to be underweight, re-promoting van der Garde to 21st once again.

However, the team has now replaced the gearbox layshaft and by breaking the seal on the gearbox incurred a further five-place grid penalty to leave van der Garde stone dead last, a full four places behind teammate Charles Pic.

In turn, di Resta rises to P21 for his home race at Silverstone.
