Sutil penalised, revised grid

Sutil penalised, revised grid

Adrian Sutil was hit with a five-place grid penalty as Force India changed his gearbox after his crash in final practice.

The German had qualified 17th for Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix but will start P22 due to the penalty.

Sutil, though, hasn't given up on achieving a top-ten result.

"With the grid penalty I will be starting at the back so I need to try and deliver consistent race pace and hopefully move towards the points," he said.

Two other drivers, Charles Pic and Jules Bianchi, were also penalised, both handed 10-place drops having been slapped with their third reprimands of the season in Korea.

They will start P20 and P21 respectively.
