Adrian Sutil will start the Italian Grand Prix from 17th after being awarded a three-place grid penalty for impeding Lewis Hamilton during Q2.

The Force India driver slowed on the final corner as Hamilton was approaching from behind on his final flying lap, forcing the Mercedes driver to back-off slightly.

Hamilton failed to make it through to Q3 for the first time in 67-races as a result, though he admitted Sutil wasn't the only reason for his poor pace.
