Button will drop five places on the grid after the gearbox fitted to his car after his retirement from the Singapore Grand Prix in September was found to be faulty, and with Formula 1 regulations requiring gearboxes to last for six consecutive races, this meant an automatic penalty for the Briton. Button is hoping that hot conditions on Sunday allow him to recover those places as McLaren seem to be finding…
