BREAKING: DC to receive 5-place penalty

David Coulthard's strong qualifying will be for nothing as the Scot will receive a 5-place grid penalty as his heavy shunt at the end of the second session will result in a gearbox change.

The penalty has not been officially announced, but the veteran Red Bull driver told SpeedTV.com it will happen, and he will start 15th tomorrow.

The penalty might have been worse, but Red Bull was able to salvage the chassis. The team could not confirm the cause of the accident, but Coulthard does not believe he was necessarily at fault.

Coulthard also claims a sore head, which has gotten worse since the accident, SpeedTV.com reports, but has not sought medical treatment. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
