The German got in Hamilton’s way at the final corner - the Parabolica - as the Briton was completing a timed lap. The penalty means that Sutil will drop from 14th to 17th on the starting grid, whilst Williams' Pastor Maldonado, Froce India's Paul di Resta and Sauber's Esteban Gutierrez all move up a place. Hamilton remains 12th having been knocked out of qualifying after Q2.
