The revised Australian GP grid

The revised Australian GP grid

With two drivers incurring penalties, the Australian GP grid looks a bit different to how qualifying ended.

Both Valtteri Bottas and Esteban Gutierrez were hit with five-place grid penalties after needing new gearboxes having encounted problems during final practice.

Bottas therefore drops from 10th to 15th while Gutierrez will line up at the very back of the field.

Lewis Hamilton and Daniel Ricciardo will start from the front row of the grid.

The Grid
01 Lewis Hamilton Mercedes
02 Daniel Ricciardo Red Bull
03 Nico Rosberg Mercedes
04 Kevin Magnussen McLaren
05 Fernando Alonso Ferrari
06 Jean-Eric Vergne Toro Rosso
07 Nico Hulkenberg Force India
