Pic sent to back of grid



Caterham's Charles Pic will start the German Grand Prix from the back of the grid after receiving a five-place penalty for changing a part in his car's gearbox, the FIA said in a statement on Sunday.

The Frenchman qualified 19th but will now start from 22nd at the Nuerburgring, behind Marussia's Max Chilton.

The gearbox layshaft was not a part that can be replaced without a breach of the rules, meaning the stewards had to impose the mandatory penalty.
