Ricciardo takes British GP grid penalty for gearbox change

The Associated Press

SILVERSTONE, England (AP) — Daniel Ricciardo's pursuit of a sixth straight podium finish has been set back by a five-place grid penalty at the British Grand Prix.

The sanction is the result of the Australian having to change the gearbox on his Red Bull before it had been used in six consecutive Formula One races.

Ricciardo is fourth in the drivers' championship heading into Sunday's race at Silverstone.
