The Williams driver has now been penalised at each of the first two events of the 2014 Formula 1 season.

In Australia, he was demoted from 10th to 15th on the grid for a gearbox change, while this weekend he falls from 15th to 18th having been found guilty of impeding Daniel Ricciardo's Red Bull.

The rest of the grid lines up in qualifying order.

Lewis Hamilton beat Sebastian Vettel to pole, with Nico Rosberg pipping Fernando Alonso to third place.
