Paul di Resta was excluded from the qualifying results of the British Grand Prix on Saturday after his Force India was found in breach of regulations.

The Scot’s car was found to be underweight during the post-qualifying scrutineering checks conducted by the FIA after which the matter was referred to the stewards.

After a lengthy deliberation, it was established that the car breached rules and the driver was demoted from fifth place, from where he had originally qualified, to the back of the grid.

It is believed that the loss of the total weight, which includes the car and driver combined, was a result of di Resta weighing in less than expected after the session had ended.

Di Resta was had said that he was “over the moon” after he had equalled his best qualifying position in front of home fans.

This is the third straight event wherein the Scot, who has scored points in all but one Grand Prix this season, will start the race from the bottom six of the grid.

As a result of the revised grid, Daniel Ricciardo will now start from a career-best fifth place as the Toro Rosso driver gains a position.
