Formula 1 shortly before races in Jidda no gear change in stages
As Red Bull confirmed on Sunday before the penultimate season’s race (18.30 CET / RTL and SKY), the gearbox must not be exchanged at the car of the Dutch. Trapping can start with rank three.
The engineers say there is no risk, said Red Bulls Motorsport Advisor Helmut Marko at Motorsport-Magazin.com. A change of the transmission would have resulted in a requirement by five starting places.
Tapping was already clear in qualifying on pole position course when he lost control of his bodies and crashed to the top of the wall. His large World Cup rival Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) therefore secured the first starting place.

Trapped has eight points ahead of the record champion. If he gets 18 meters more, he is prematurely formula 1 world champion. Otherwise, the decision on December 12 in Abu Dhabi falls.
