Vitantonio Liuzzi will move to the very rear of the grid after crashing heavily during Interlagos qualifying on Saturday.

The Italian actually booked 15th place on the grid in his Force India before aquaplaning on the pit straight.

He visited the medical centre for a mandatory check but was not hurt in the impact, unlike his gearbox which will have to be changed.

The unscheduled change means Liuzzi, 28, drops five places to last, the Silverstone based team confirmed.
