Lewis Hamiltons hopes of ending Nico Rosbergs winning run at the Chinese GP have suffered a blow after it was revealed he will take a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change. The world champion, the polesitter at 2016s opening two rounds, will start no higher than sixth for Sundays race after Mercedes opted to change the gearbox in his car after it sustained damage in Bahrain. Hamilton confirmed the contact with Valtteri Bottas at turn one two weeks ago was not the cause.F1 gearboxes have to last for six consecutive race weekends. It has been a good track to me for many years so I feel good coming here, Hamilton told Sky Sports F1.Naturally when you arrive in Shanghai and find out youre already going to be starting five places behind wherever I qualify is a kick in the goonies, but you just take it. Challenge is another opportunity to arise, rather than looking at the glass half empty, look at it half full. When is the Chinese GP on Sky?

Mercedes later tweeted: Not the ideal start to the #ChineseGP weekend, admittedly, but of all the places to take a grid hit, this is one of the better ones.Despite the damage to the gearbox not being the result of accident damage, Hamilton insists he is not worried about the reliability going forward.Rosberg: Lewis still a threatNot for me. They change it and I go again. I dont use it as a concern, Im sure the team are focussed on it, he said.Asked what caused the damage he responded: It doesnt really matter.Following poor starts from pole in each of the first two races, Hamilton already trails Rosberg by 17 points in the Drivers Championship. The Briton has started either first or second amid a run of eight consecutive Mercedes front-row lockouts, with last Septembers Singapore GP the only time in the last 29 races Hamilton has not started in the front two.Hamiltons penalty now presents Ferrari with the chance to claim a rare front-row start as they look to recover from reliability problems in the first two races which have left them 50 points behind Mercedes in the Constructors Championship.
