The grid for the Bahrain Grand Prix will look a little different compared to the qualifying results after the three pre-race penalties have been applied.

Mark Webber is demoted three-places after he collided with Jean-Eric Vergne in China, whilst Esteban Gutierrez received a five-place drop for his costly error which saw him hit the rear of Adrian Sutil - also at the Chinese GP.

Meanwhile Lewis Hamilton starts 9th after qualifying fourth thanks to a new gearbox following his FP3 tyre failure which resulted in a five-place penalty.

The big winners include Felipe Massa, Paul di Resta and Adrian Sutil who each move up two places.
