The HRT driver finished the Italian GP in 18th place but the team discovered a problem with his gearbox after the event.

The change at the Marina Bay circuit will result in him getting a five-place grid drop, which will almost certainly drop him to the back of the starting order.

HRT has introduced a new floor for this weekend's race, its first significant upgrade since May.
