Starting grid - Britain 2013 // Paul di Resta suffers the most as he's excluded from qualifying

Published by Christine

Giedo van der Garde saved an extra set of tyres in qualifying, as he knew he had a five place grid drop left over from the British Grand Prix to be applied. He assumed he would be last on the grid, but that was before Paul di Resta was excluded from the qualifying results after his car was deemed to be under the legal weight limit. He has been given permission to start the race from the rear of the field, though.
