The starting grid for today's GP2 Series feature race has been altered substantially following a number of penalties that have been handed out.
Five drivers were each handed a five-position penalty after failing to slow sufficiently under yellow flags in qualifying.
Diego Nunes, Alberto Valerio, Milos Pavlovic, Andy Soucek and Mike Conway were all penalized for driving too quickly after Kamui Kobayashi spun off track at Turn 1 and Alvaro Parente spun at Turn 3.
Valerio's penalty is in addition to the earlier five-grid position penalty he picked up for completing two laps at the end of free practice, a penalty which Kamui Kobayashi also collected.
Ben Hanley will start 10 places behind his qualifying position as a result of causing an avoidable crash in race two Barcelona. Fortunately for him, the other penalties have moved him up to 19th, from 22nd
