Kimi Raikkonen will start the Malaysian Grand Prix from tenth after the race stewards found he blocked Nico Rosberg during qualifying.

The Finn, who won last time out in Australia a week ago, qualified seventh but will start 10th after being handed a three-place grid drop by the FIA.

The report says he blocked the Mercedes driver, who starts sixth, at turn 14 during Q3.
