British GP: revised starting grid after Paul di Resta penalty

The British Grand Prix grid changed post-qualifying for all bar the Mercedes and Red Bulls, as Paul di Resta's exclusion from the results dropped his Force India from fifth to the back

British GP: revised starting grid after Paul di Resta penalty

Di Resta's penalty for being underweight brings Daniel Ricciardo's Toro Rosso into the top five. Force India still has a car on row three, as Adrian Sutil is elevated to sixth.

Caterham driver Giedo van der Garde was set to start last as he had a 10-place penalty for colliding with Nico Hulkenberg while being lapped in Canada.

But di Resta's issue cancels out that punishment, as it brings van der Garde back up to 21st, which was where he had originally qualified.

Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg share the front row, followed by the Red Bulls of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

For the second time in 2021, McLaren will line up for the start of a grand prix from the first row. It knows it has the chance of “glory” if things go well for Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris at the start of the 2021 Italian Grand Prix, but even if they just maintain their grid positions, signs from the rest of the Monza weekend suggest success is very possible for Formula 1’s other orange army
