ART's Pastor Maldonado has been excluded from the results of yesterday's GP2 Series feature race in Valencia. This means that Kamui Kobayashi has been promoted to eighth and will now start from pole for today's sprint race.
A post-race inspection of the Venezuelan's car revealed that the floor was too low on the right-hand side; a problem that is thought to have been caused when a bolt that held the floor in place worked loose following contact during the opening lap.
Maldonado will start the sprint race from the back of the grid.
