    question (and in all honesty i’m completely confused by this), but if a driver fails to finish the race, is he not entitled to a new gearbox for the next one?

    in which case, all but 6 of the drivers would have had new boxes for malaysia.

    you are right and for some reason the updates to table I made were not saved and wrong table came up :-). fixing it now.

    here is the excerpt from the 2008 regulations re gearbox:
    “Each driver may use no more than one gearbox for four consecutive Events in which his team competes. Should a driver use a replacement gearbox he will drop five places on the starting grid at that Event and an additional five places each time a further gearbox is used.

    In most respects the system mirrors that in place for engines, in that Fridays are free and an event consists of P3, Qualifying and the race. Also, any driver who fails to finish an event can use a new gearbox at the next one without penalty as long as he retires ‘for reasons which the technical delegate accepts as being beyond the control of the team or driver.’ A replacement driver will have to take over the gearbox of the original driver, should it not yet have been used for four events.”

    fixed now, should be correct if Rubens was allowed to change his gearbox after his disqualification
