Giovinazzi, Jeffri excluded from qualifying due to tyre pressures
By:

Antonio Giovinazzi and Nabil Jeffri were stripped of second and eighth in the GP2 qualifying at Monza respectively, as tyre pressure was found to be below the limit on both of their cars.

Giovinazzi, who is second in the standings, was set to start tomorrow's race from the front row, beaten by only half a tenth by points leader Pierre Gasly.

However, one tyre on his car was below the permitted pressure limit and he was ordered to the back of the grid as a result.

Arden's Nabil Jeffri claimed his first top 10 qualifying result but had two tyres in breach of the regulations and will join Giovinazzi on the last row as a result.

The penalties promote Artem Markelov to second place on the grid, with Arthur Pic and Mitch Evans now starting right behind the top two.
