Malaysia 2009: The Grid

Malaysia 2009: The Grid

With qualifying completed, we now have the completed grid for tomorrow’s Malaysian Grand Prix. There are two penalties so far that have affected the order the cars will line up on the start/finish straight on Sunday, but Jenson Button’s pole is safe for now and the Briton will lead the pack when the lights go out at Sepang. Rubens Barrichello has been demoted five grid slots for changing his gear box out of sequence on Friday evening, and Sebastian Vettel has been sent back ten grid slots for failing to stop with a damaged car in Melbourne last weekend.
