Roberto Colciago and Peter Terting will not start on the front row of Mexico's WTCC race after being awarded penalities that will drop them back to the sixth row
SEAT driver Terting changed his engine during the Mexican event triggering an automatic ten-place penalty. Independent Honda driver Colciago was docked ten grid places for an incident with Jordi Gene in the first race at the last round at Imola.
Alfa Romeo's Auguso Farfus Jr, who qualified fourth, also ten grid places after his incident with Alex Zanardi at Imola and will start 14th. SEAT's Jason Plato suffered the same fate following an incident with James Thompson, and will start 20th despite qualifying 10th.
It means that Alfa Romeos' Fabrizio Giovanardi assumes pole position alongside teammate James Thompson.
