Alain Menu will start the first World Touring Car race of the weekend at Estoril from last position after he failed technical scrutineering following qualifying.

The Swiss driver had qualified in third place, but was stripped of his times when it was discovered his on-board fire extinguisher was empty.

As a result, he will be forced to start last, alongside James Thompson, meaning JOrdi Gene will start third, ahead of Rob Huff in fourth, Andy Priaulx in fifth and Augusto Farfus in sixth.
