Revised British GP grid

There are several changes to the British GP grid after four drivers were hit with penalties.

Nico Hulkenberg qualified inside the top ten in ninth place but has dropped to 14th as his Force India team needed to change his gearbox, which is an automatic five-place penalty.

Charles Pic incurred the same penalty, however, it had absolutely no impact on the Marussia driver as he was already 24th.

There were also two penalties carried over from the previous race in Valencia with Kamui Kobayashi dropping five places for his accident with Felipe Massa and Jean-Eric Vergne ten for crashing into Heikki Kovalainen.

They will start P17 and P23 respectively.
