Pedro de la Rosa's Arrows-Supertec failed the fuel test at post-qualifying scrutineering in Barcelona today. The fuel sample taken from his car did not meet the FIA criteria, and the young Spaniard was moved to the back of the starting grid.

However, Arrows appealed the verdict, and de la Rosa will now start in the 9th position -- a career best for him -- at his home Grand Prix, pending an appeal hearing by the FIA next week.
