*Rubens Barrichello and Giancarlo Fisichella are under investigation from an incident from Q1. Currently little news is available on what the incident is if there will be any further penalties. Update: No penalty given to either driver. Apparently, Barrichello may have held Fisichella up, but the stewards decided it wasn’t a punishable offense.

**Sebastian Vettel has been given a five grid-place penalty for having his gearbox replaced before he is allowed. Read this post for more information. Because Vettel’s gearbox was changed first, his penalty is applied first.

***Giancarlo Fisichella has been given a five grid-place penalty for having his gearbox replaced before he is allowed. Because Fisichella’s gearbox was changed after Vettel’s, his penalty is applied after Vettel’s.

Therefore, the bottom of the grid looks like this (I think):

17. Nelson Piquet Jr. Renault 1m16.933s Q1
18. Adrian Sutil Force India 1m17.225s Q1
19. Sebastian Vettel Scuderia Toro Rosso 1m16.955s Q1
20. Giancarlo Fisichella Force India 1m17.823s Q1
