Three penalties mean that the back half of the grid looks very different with some drivers gaining as many as three places from their original qualifying positions.

Esteban Gutierrez was carrying a 10-place penalty from Austria, which was applied before Max Chilton received 5-places for a gearbox change. Gutierrez trumps Pastor Maldonado, who was excluded and sent to the back of the grid, but the Venezuelan in turn is allowed to start ahead of the Caterhams, which technically did not qualifying but are allowed to start.

With all of the movement, we’ve put together a final look at what the grid will look like for Sunday’s race at Silverstone.
