Raikkonen penalised for impeding

Saturday 23-March-2013 11:26

Kimi Raikkonen will start Sunday's Malaysian GP from 10th place on the grid after he was penalised for impeding another driver.

Contending with the rain that meant the cars were kicking up some serious spray behind them, Raikkonen reportedly baulked Nico Rosberg.

The Australian GP winner went on to qualify in seventh place while Rosberg put his Mercedes up to sixth.

However, after qualifying Raikkonen was summoned to the stewards were he was handed a three-place grid penalty for impeding the German.

The Lotus driver will therefore begin round two of the Championship from 10th place on the grid.
