Nico Rosberg will start on pole position for the British Grand Prix ahead of Sebastian Vettel, but a few drivers have changed places since qualifying following a handful of penalties.
Esteban Gutierrez was handed a 10-place penalty for his unsafe release in Austria, but due to Marcus Ericsson and Kamui Kobayashi's failure to meet the 107% time, he only drops to 20th, but actually starts 19th after Pastor Maldonado was excluded.
The Venezuelan qualified 15th, but a fuel irregularity saw him excluded and he would have started last, but again the Caterham cars technically didn't qualify to race and therefore start 21st and 22nd regardless of penalties.
Max Chilton was also given a five-place penalty for changing his gearbox and drops from 13th to 17th.
The big winners are Fernando Alonso and the Williams' cars which jump forward three places each, whilst Kimi Raikkonen moves up two.
