Minardi's Gianmaria Bruni joined the list of drivers given penalties for the starting grid of the European Grand Prix. At the start of the second qualifying session Bruni exited the pit lane when the lights were red and the stewards put him under investigation.

He qualified 17th but the consequent stewards' decision was to declare his time void. He will start 20th behind McLaren's David Coulthard and Sauber's Giancarlo Fisichella, who were both penalised for having an engine change.

Mark Webber also suffered a penalty in qualifying, for setting his fastest lap in Friday practice under yellow flags. With a one second penalty he ended up 14th on the grid for tomorrow's race.
