Lewis Hamilton will start the Bahrain Grand Prix from ninth place on the grid after incurring a grid penalty.

The Mercedes driver is the only driver penalised ahead of Sunday’s 57-lap Bahrain GP.

Hamilton qualified in fourth place but drops five positions because of a gearbox change penalty.

Meanwhile Sebastian Vettel is heading an all-Ferrari front row with Kimi Raikkonen P2 ahead of Valtteri Bottas and Daniel Ricciardo.

Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly starts a career-high P5.
