Massa and Gutierrez Penalized

Felipe Massa and Esteban Gutierrez have each been handed a three place grid penalty ahead of this Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix.

Gutierrez slowed down in front of Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen in the chicane in sector 3 during Q2 and cost the Finn some time, although he still easily advanced to the Q3 session.

Felipe Massa got unlucky as a faster Mark Webber came up behind him on the long sweeping right corner before the chicane. The Brazilian’s efforts to move out of the way made things worse and Webber was forced to take the wide line on the corner, on all the discarded Pirelli fragments.

Both Massa and Gutierrez were penalized three places so tomorrow’s grid will look like this –

  1. Nico Rosberg
  2. Lewis Hamilton
  3. Sebastian Vettel
  4. Kimi Raikkonen
  5. Fernando Alonso
  6. Romain Grosjean
  7. Mark Webber
  8. Sergio Perez
  9. Felipe Massa
  10. Paul di Resta
  11. Daniel Ricciardo
  12. Jean-Eric Vergne
  13. Adrian Sutil
  14. Jenson Button
  15. Nico Hulkenberg
  16. Valtteri Bottas
  17. Pastor Maldonado
  18. Giedo van der Garde
  19. Esteban Gutierrez
  20. Jules Bianchi
  21. Max Chilton
  22. Charles Pic
