Spanish Grand Prix, Barcelona - Starting grid

11 May 2013

Felipe Massa and Esteban Gutiérrez have both been handed three-place starting grid penalties for Sunday's 2013 F1 Grand Prix of Spain. (See separate story.)

Massa originally qualified in sixth place putting him alongside his Ferrari team mate Fernando Alonso for the start of tomorrow's race in Barcelona, Spain. The penalty will push him down to ninth place where he will start alongside Force India's Paul di Resta.

Romain Grosjean will now start alongside Alonso on row three, while Mark Webber and Sergio Perez also gain a position apiece as a result of Massa's drop and will consequently start alongside each other on row four.

Having qualified in 16th place, Esteban Gutiérrez's penalty drops the Sauber driver down to 19th place behind the two Williams cars of Valtteri Bottas and Pastor Maldonado and also the Caterham of Giedo van der Garde. He'll start alongside Marussia's Jules Bianchi on the penultimate row of the grid on Sunday.
