Kovalainen put back 5 places on grid

By on

The FIA have releaved that Heikki Kovalainen has been penalised for impeding Mark Webber during today's qualifying session. The Finn was on the race line on his in-lap and made Webber to slow down at a crucial time in his qualifying.

The penalty is obviously an additional problem for McLaren after Lewis Hamilton was already penalised with 10 grid places after he crashed into Kimi Raikkonen in the pitlane during the Canadian Grand Prix.

Heikki will now have to start from 10th on the grid after having qualified sixth.
