PLAYERS: Kimi Raikkonen
Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen will be penalized five grid places at Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix after making an unscheduled gearbox change following the opening practice sessions. According to Formula One regulations, gearboxes are required to last five races.

Teammate Romain Grosjean finished the session with the ninth fastest time.
