Can I somewhere find the number of engines already used by the drivers? Is any of the top 8 teams in danger to be penalized near the end of the season?

What is the reasoning behind gear box penalties, as they happen quite often, sometimes after accidents, but often without? Do some teams take it at will if they chose wrong gear ratios? Who can give insight for me pls?

a gearbox has to last 5 races and usually theyre swapped as a precaution. if they didnt give out a penalty teams would just break the rules and change them every race Confused

last year (might have been the year before) vettel was really short on engines from mid season. he just ended up sitting out free practices Crazy
