Timo Glock has been moved back a further five places on the grid for tomorrow's Australian Grand Prix for impeding another competitor, with four other drivers being given reprimands for yellow flag infringements.
The Toyota driver had done an impressive job to set the ninth fastest time in qualifying, but had originally been moved back to 14th place as the result of a gearbox change that his team had to conduct before qualifying.
However, Glock has been handed further bad news by being punished for impeding Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber in qualifying. The penalty means he will start 19th on the grid.
Glock was not the only driver to be called in front of the stewards. Jarno Trulli, Nico Rosberg, Giancarlo Fisichella and Jenson Button were all asked to explain why they set their best laptimes under yellow flag conditions, but all escaped with only a reprimand.
