Maldonado excluded from qualifying results

Lotus's Pastor Maldonado has been excluded from qualifying for failing to provide a one litre fuel sample after the session.

The Venezuelan qualified in 15th, but was told to pull over and stop the car by his engineer at the end of Q2 - likely because of the fuel situation.

The stewards report states that he may "start from the back of the grid, in front of any cars that failed to set a time within 107 per cent of the fastest time in Q1."

He will therefore start P20 ahead of the two Caterham cars, unless the team opt to start from the pit lane.
