Rosberg collects 10-place penalty for engine change

Nico Rosberg will be demoted 10 places on Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix starting grid after his Williams team said they would have to change his car's engine. Under Formula One rules, engines must last two consecutive races unless a driver fails to finish and the changed engine had done only one. Rosberg is hitting a rich vein of form, scoring points in his last four races. The penalty will be a blow to Williams, who are fourth in the constructors' championship and 11 points behind Renault with three races remaining.
