Lewis Hamilton and Mark Webber will both take penalties before they line-up on the grid on Sunday for the F1 2013 Bahrain Grand Prix. Hamilton drops five places to ninth because of a gearbox change, while Webber loses three places after his collision with Jean-Eric Vergne in China last Sunday.

Nico Rosberg will start from pole position, his second at the pinnacle of the sport and Mercedes' second in succession. Sebastian Vettel will start alongside him, with the Ferraris of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa on row two.

Esteban Gutierrez will line-up last - dropping from 18th to 22nd following the five-place drop he incurred in Shanghai after crashing into Adrian Sutil.
