Esteban Gutiérrez continues his chain reaction of penalties, with one leftover from Silverstone. Having been found guilty of causing the incident with Pastor Maldonado, the Sauber driver drops three places on the grid. Lewis Hamilton has also taken a five place grid penalty for changing the gearbox after his crash during qualifying. He may opt to start from the pit lane, however.

Finally, Marcus Ericsson has been given permission to start the race despite not actually making an appearance in qualifying, let alone setting a lap time. The stewards have given him special dispensation to start last on the grid.
