Heikki Kovalainen as added to McLaren’s woe by getting himself a penalty to move him closer to his team mate on the grid. Two weeks ago Lewis Hamilton was given a ten-place demotion for France, and now Heikki has collected a five-place demotion for blocking Mark Webber during qualifying. To say the Woking team are going to have their work cut out tomorrow is a bit of an understatement.
Heikki was following the Williams of Kazuki Nakajima at the time of the infringement on an out-lap and Mark Webber lost a fair amount of time following the slow moving McLaren in his Red Bull. This penalty means Kovalainen has been knocked back to tenth on the grid with Hamilton starting in thirteenth.
