China 2013 - Starting grid // Mark Webber drops to the back of the grid after fuel issue

Published by Christine

Mark Webber stopped out on track during Q2 in Shanghai, pulling to a halt and bringing his qualifying to an end. The team later said a problem with the bowser had meant the amount of fuel required wasn't delivered to the car. As the car couldn't get back to the pitlane and deliver the sample required to the FIA, a penalty was imposed.
