Revised United States grid

With two penalties handed down - one rather controversially - the US Grand Prix grid is rather different the timesheets after qualifying.

Two drivers, Felipe Massa and Romain Grosjean, have been hit with grid penalties for gearbox changes.

But while Grosjean's was legitimate, Ferrari opened to break the seal on Massa's in order to put Fernando Alonso on the clean side of the grid.

So Alonso is starting P7, Grosjean is P8 and Massa is P11. But, perhaps more importantly, Sebastian Vettel is starting from pole position.
