Following today's incident in qualifying, which saw Franck Perera and Romain Grosjean collide early in the session resulting in both cars spinning off track to bring to an end their participation in qualifying, the stewards have judged that the DPR racer impeded his countryman.

As Perera's qualifying time exceeded 107% of the fastest qualifying time set by polesitter Lucas di Grassi, the stewards have decided that the Frenchman shall not participate in Race 1. He will, however, be allowed to take part of Race 2 on Sunday, starting from last on the grid.

Grosjean, whose best time also exceeded the 107% time, has been given permission to take the start of tomorrow's race.
