'If It's F1, It's Vital'

Adjusted grid for Germany.

Grid penalties are a regular occurrence in modern day Formula One.

Teams can received penalties for engine changes, gear box changes or any a variety of other team irregularities.

Drivers can also receive grid penalties for a variety of on the track punishments, usually handed out by the race stewards from the previous Grand Prix.

But while they are pretty regular, we do not often see four alterations on a Sunday morning, mixing up the grid ahead of a race.

Romain Grosjean, Nico Rosberg and Mark Webber have all had unscheduled gearbox changes.

The Red Bull of Mark Webber will now start 8th alongside the McLaren of Lewis Hamilton. The Lotus of Grosjean moves from 15th to 19th, he didn't drop the full five places due to the Mercedes of Rosberg dropping down from 17th to 21st.

During qualifying Ferrari's Fernando Alonso complained over the team radio about Sauberís Sergio Perez. The Spaniard believed that the Mexican had impeded him on the start of a fast lap while the Sauber exited the pits.

Despite the heavy rain playing a factor in the incident the stewards decided to punish Perez for blocking other cars, also noting that he had also blocked the Lotus of Kimi Raikkonen during the same session.

The Sauber driver drops from a qualifying position of 12th to 17th on the grid.

While Pastor Maldonado was handed a double penalty following the British Grand Prix, his punishment did not include a grid penalty for this weekend so he in fact moves up a place on the grid from sixth to fifth.

Well Massa has a lot of work to do. He has the chance to show why he should keep his seat for next season in this race. Should be a great first lap with Webber trying to get past the Macs and Pastor trying to stop them getting past him, bring it on......

If Red Bull are allowed to start now they are under investigation.
