Eight drivers have been promoted a position thanks to the stewards decision to demote Mark Webber to the back of the grid after he failed to provide the necessary fuel sample after qualifying.

Webber will start 22nd, 13 places behind his team-mate Sebastian Vettel in 9th.

Lewis Hamilton starts on pole - his first for Mercedes - ahead of the Australian Grand Prix winner Kimi Raikkonen.
