The application of two penalties changes the starting grid for the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix slightly, with 14 cars benefitting from Daniel Ricciardo and Adrian Sutil's misfortune. The Red Bull driver qualified third, but starts 13th thanks to a ten-place grid penalty from the Malaysian GP for an unsafe release from his pit box.

#FFF1Twit Out of the F1!

@SlvAaron #FFF1Twit 5 penalty points & a 10 place grid drop.

@jonesy_laaa: @SlvAaron #FFF1twit I'd give him a race ban. It's the only way he is gonna learn.

@lukasredl: @SlvAaron At least 5, 8 would be the best, it was VERY serious. #FFF1Twit

@SlvAaron #FFF1Twit Would give him at least 6 also RIC got 10 place drop for the pit incident & MAL only 5 for this?How does that make sense?
