Revised Japanese GP grid

Revised Japanese GP grid

There are several changes to the Japanese GP grid as no fewer than four drivers were hit with penalties.

Jenson Button, who qualified third, drops to eighth on the Suzuka grid after the 2011 winner was hit with a five-place gearbox penalty.

Nico Hulkenberg suffered the fate dropping to 13th while Michael Schumacher had a ten-place penalty.

The Mercedes driver's drop was cause of his Singapore accident when he crashed into the back of Jean-Eric Vergne.

And Vergne himself has a penalty and will start 17th after impeding Bruno Senna in Saturday's qualifying.
