Davide Valsecchi and Diego Nunes will lose five grid positions for tomorrow's race after the stewards judged them to have blocked their competitors during this afternoon's qualifying session in Silverstone.

Nunes will now take to the grid in sixteenth position, while Valsecchi will start from twentieth.

The stewards also announced that Roldan Rodriguez, Sergio Perez and Ricardo Teixeira, who all failed to complete a lap in qualifying, will be allowed to start from the rear of the grid after setting times in free practice which were within 107% of Romain Grosjean's pole lap.
