Justin Wilson put to back of Sao Paulo IndyCar grid for rules infringement

Justin Wilson, Dale Coyne, Sao Paulo 2012Justin Wilson will start from the rear of the grid for Sunday's IndyCar race in Sao Paulo after his car failed a post-qualifying technical inspection.

The Dale Coyne driver had qualified a season-best sixth for the race, but an inspection of his car revealed it to be in breach of rule 14.4.13.3 of the series regulations, which requires cars to run either a camera or dummy camera.

Ganassi's Graham Rahal will move up to the third row of the grid as a result of Wilson's penalty.

Further amendments to the grid are expected after Dragon's Sebastien Bourdais and Dreyer & Reinbold's Oriol Servia changed engines overnight. The pair join Bourdais' team-mate Katherine Legge and Rahal Letterman Lanigan's Takuma Sato, both of whom were already due to serve 10-place grid penalties for unauthorised engine changes.

An amended grid reflecting the changes will be released after the morning warm-up session.
