Brazilian GP: Final starting grid

Sergio Perez's five-place penalty looks set to be the only change to the Brazilian Grand Prix starting grid ahead of the race

Brazilian GP: Final starting grid

Perez's McLaren required a gearbox change after he crashed at the end of Q2. He had qualified 14th despite the incident, but will now start 19th.

At the front of the field, Sebastian Vettel dismissed any thoughts of an underdog upset in the rain by taking one of his most dominant poles of the 2013 Formula 1 season.

Nico Rosberg and Fernando Alonso were his main rivals, with Mark Webber starting fourth for his final F1 race.
