Buemi and Glock get grid penalties

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Sebastien Buemi and Timo Glock have each been handed penalties for impeding other drivers during qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix.

Buemi was given a three-place penalty for impeding Nico Rosberg and Timo Glock got a five-place penalty for holding up Sakon Yamamoto.

However the stewards decided against punishing Jarno Trulli or Lucas di Grassi for their collision during qualifying.

The stewards did not explain why Buemi and Glock received different penalties.

Following the penalties the grid is believed to be as follows:

Row 1 1. Mark Webber 1’45.778
Red Bull-Renault
2. Lewis Hamilton 1’45.863
McLaren-Mercedes
Row 2 3. Robert Kubica 1’46.100
Renault
4. Sebastian Vettel 1’46.127
Red Bull-Renault
Row 3 5. Jenson Button 1’46.206
McLaren-Mercedes
6. Felipe Massa 1’46.314
Ferrari
Row 4 7. Rubens Barrichello 1’46.602
Williams-Cosworth
8. Adrian Sutil 1’46.659

Row 5 9. Nico H???lkenberg 1’47.053

10. Fernando Alonso 1’47.441

Row 8 15. Jarno Trulli 2’01.491

16. Sebastien Buemi 1’49.209

18. Bruno Senna 2’03.612

20. Timo Glock 1’52.049

22. Pedro de la Rosa 2’05.294

Row 12 23. Lucas di Grassi 2’18.154

As penalties are applied in the order they are declared, Rosberg’s five-place penalty (for a gearbox change) has only dropped him from 12th to 14th.
