Carlos Sainz has received a three-place grid penalty for impeding Felipe Massa during the second session of Qualifying.

The Toro Rosso driver got in the way of Massa’s flying lap heading into Turn 2, which compromised Massa’s line into the corner.

Although the Spaniard did his best to get out of the way, he wasn’t quick enough and as a result, he will drop from 13th on the grid to 16th.

Sainz was also handed two penalty points for the incident in qualifying, bringing his total to four.
