Davide Valsecchi and Esteban Gutierrez among GP2 drivers given Valencia grid penalties

Davide Valsecchi, DAMS, Valencia 2012GP2 Series points leader Davide Valsecchi is among four drivers who have been given grid penalties for impeding other drivers in Valencia qualifying.

Lotus driver Esteban Gutierrez and DAMS' Valsecchi will be demoted three places from their second-row slots, with the same penalty given to Addax's Monaco race winner Johnny Cecotto, who had qualified 15th. Cecotto will only actually drop two places as 17th-place qualifier Simon Trummer (Arden) has been given a one-position blocking penalty.

The stewards' decisions mean that Caterham's Giedo van der Garde and Carlin's Max Chilton are elevated onto row two of the grid, behind poleman James Calado (Lotus) and his front-row partner Felipe Nasr (DAMS).
