Qualifying Report - Update:

After a long "discussion" with the stewards, pole-sitter Jules Bianchi (ART Grand Prix) has been docked five gird spaces for "unnecessarily impeding another driver", and will therefore start today's race from 6th.

This means that pole is now awarded to Valtteri Bottas in another of the ART Grand Prix cars, while alongside him is Mika Maki (Signature), making it an all-Finnish front row. The other beneficiaries are Roberto Merhi (Manor Motorsport), Stefano Coletti (Prema Powerteam) and Jean Karl Vernay (Signature), who all move up a place.
