There were two penalties applied to the Qualifying results: Glock had a 5 grid spot penalty for non-regulation work on his Virgin’s gearbox ahead of qualifying, and Petrov was demoted five places after stewards decided he impeded Virgin’s Timo Glock during qualifying. So the revised grid is: FA, JB, FM, MW, LH, SV, NR, NH, RK, RB, AS, MS, KK, SB, JA, PdlR, JT, HK, VL, VP, LDG, BS, SY, TG.
The weather in Monza: air temperature 25°C; track 36°C; humidity 45%; wind 2m/s
