Felipe Nasr has been handed a three-place grid drop after impeding compatriot Felipe Massa during qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Nasr was driving slowly on the racing line on the approach to Juncao corner, while Massa was on a flying lap towards the end of Q1.

Massa had to take to the run-off to avoid the Sauber driver, though both were able to progress through the session.

Nasr originally qualified in 11th position but will now drop three spots, as well as having his racing license endorsed with two penalty points, his first in Formula 1.
