Starting grid (revised) - Spanish Grand Prix

Pastor Maldonado gained his first Grand Prix pole position for Williams and will start alongside local hero Fernando Alonso in Spain.
Pastor Maldonado starts from pole position in Barcelona at the Circuit de Catalunya, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso alongside him on the front row and an all-Lotus second row behind them.

Lewis Hamilton lost provisional pole because his McLaren was short on fuel for its final qualifying run. he will start from the back of the grid, alongside Narain Karthikeyan who is allowed to start despite being unable to set a lap within 107% of the fastest Q1 time.
