Ferrari have confirmed that Charles Leclerc will not receive a gearbox change meaning the Monegasque driver will start from pole for his home race, the Monaco Grand Prix.
Leclerc brought out the red flags when he crashed towards the end of Q3. It was a hard hit, with both the Monegasque driver and team holding their breath regarding whether a change in gearbox would be needed, which would result in a grid penalty. Those fears were slightly eased on Saturday evening, with Ferrari revealing an initial check revealed no serious damage.
However, they also made it clear further checks would be carried out on Sunday to decide if the gearbox would be used in Sunday's race, which they have now ascertained will be the case meaning Leclerc will not receive a five-place grid penalty.
