Pastor Maldonado has been given a ten place grid penalty for the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Maldonado missed the weighbridge during qualifying in Interlagos and was given a reprimand.
As it was the Venezuelan’s third reprimand of the season, he sustains a ten place drop.
The penalty means Maldonado will start from sixteenth place.
Maldonado’s demotion is a bonus for Fernando Alonso, who moves up to seventh place on the grid.
