Webber to start from pitlane

Sunday 14-April-2013 06:52

Mark Webber will start Sunday's Chinese GP from the pitlane after Red Bull decided to make changes to his RB9.

Webber had a dismal Saturday afternoon at the Shanghai circuit with a fuel problem resulted in the Aussie stopping out on track.

He qualified down in 14th place but was later excluded as his car did not have enough fuel for the mandatory FIA test.

Red Bull decided to use the penalty to alter Webber's car.

Breaking parc ferme regulations, the team reported put in a new gearbox while also changing the rear wing and the suspension set-up.

As a result Webber will start from the pitlane.
