Kimi's co-driver Kaj Lindstrom said: "In the first service today we had hoped to make some changes to the car after the Super Special and change a few parts, but time was a bit too tight so we couldn't do everything. Because of this the car wasn't 100 per cent this morning and when we got back for this service we found a small problem - so we have to fit a new gearbox.



"I hope it will be okay but we might take a time penalty if we go over time. The most important thing is to get the car right so Kimi feels comfortable. So far I've been pleased with his Kimi's driving. It's been a surprise for a lot of the spectators I think."

Note: Kimi later got his car out of service on time
