Fifth driver to be given a grid penalty

Narain Karthikeyan will get a five-place grid penalty for impeding Michael Schumacher during qualifying for the Indian Grand Prix.

The Indian driver, returning to racing for a one-off with HRT this weekend, was found to have impeded the Mercedes racer during the first qualifying segment.
 
Schumacher still made it to Q2 though, while Karthikeyan qualified in 21st position.
 
He is the fifth driver to be given a grid penalty after Lewis Hamilton, Sergio Perez, Vitaly Petrov and Daniel Ricciardo.
 
They are all set to start ahead of Virgin's Timo Glock, who failed to set a time within the 107 per cent in qualifying.
