Chandhok to start from pitlane

Karun Chandhok, Hispania, Shanghai 2010Karun Chandhok will start from the pitlane at the Chinese Grand Prix following a hydraulic pump assembly replacement overnight.

Although the parts were replaced with items approved by the FIA technical delegate, as they are different from the original specification it means a breach of parc ferme regulations. That means the HRT driver must start from the pits.

Chandhok already had a five-place grid penalty for his team having broken a seal on his gearbox without an FIA observer present.
