Adrian Sutil has been handed a three-place grid penalty for impeding Mark Webber during qualifying for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
The Force India driver had qualified in 16th position, but will now start from 19th after he spoiled Webber's final run in Q1.
The Red Bull Racing driver was knocked out in the first session after the incident.
"I just tried to stay in my position to get a clear start to the lap. It was a misunderstanding and I apologized to Mark after the end of the session," said Sutil.
