Red Bull replaces Verstappen’s gearbox again after driveshaft failure

Red Bull has elected to change Max Verstappen's gearbox for the second time ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Verstappen suffered a driveshaft failure during the second part of qualifying, which leaves him starting from P15 on the grid. After changing his gearbox on Saturday morning, the team has reverted back to the one he used on Friday. The team has also elected to change the left- and right-hand side suspension including driveshafts on his car ahead of the race. The Dutchman will take no penalties for the component changes.
