Maldonado given 10-place grid penalty

Pastor Maldonado has been handed a 10-place grid penalty by the Brazilian race stewards after he ignored the call for him to bring his car into the weighbridge during qualifying.

Maldonado was given a reprimand but as it is his third reprimand of the season he has to take a ten place grid penalty. He will now start the race from 16th.

The penalty benefits Championship contender Fernando Alonso who will now start tomorrows title deciding race from seventh.
