Hamilton demoted to 9th on the grid

Hamilton has been pushed down the order to 9th

Lewis Hamilton has had his only lap time from qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix deleted, which drops him to 9th on the grid.

The stewards have decided that he cut a chicane on his one and only fast lap.

Lewis will start 9th, and not 10th, because of Sergio Perez’s crash, as the Mexican will not start the race tomorrow. Pastor Maldonado has been promoted to 7th, and Nico Rosberg is up to 8th.

However, since his only lap from Q3 was disqualified, there is some confusion as to whether Lewis will be able to choose his tyres for tomorrow, or if he must keep the set he set his (cancelled) lap on.

    Massa blocked Hamilton’s first fast lap and hasn’t got a grid bump! Why?
