Alonso still start from 10th

Fernando Alonso will not receive any grid penalty for tomorrow's French Grand Prix after the McLaren team confirmed he had suffered a gearbox problem and not an engine failure as it had initially been feared.

"Fernando appears to have had a gearbox failure on the first lap which was very disappointing," McLaren's F1 chief Martin Whitmarsh confirmed.Alonso will therefore start the French Grand Prix from tenth on the grid.
