Starting grid - Japan 2013 // Reprimand tallies start to take effect, as Sutil changes his gearbox

Published by Christine

After Mark Webber's surprise ten place drop in Korea due to gaining three reprimands during the year, we've got two more drivers with exactly the same penalty this weekend. Pic and Bianchi can't really drop ten, but it doesn't help their starts - particularly as Pic also has a drive through penalty before the race has even begun! Adrian Sutil has a five place drop for gearbox changes, too.
