Felipe Nasr will start Sunday's GP2 sprint race in Bahrain from the back of the grid after the stewards blamed him for his race-ending collision with Johnny Cecotto.

The South American duo were fighting over sixth place when they came together on lap 16, bringing out the safety car. Cecotto made a late dive down the inside of the DAMS driver, and the pair came together bringing an early end to their race. After the incident, they were seen having a clear difference of opinions trackside.

After the race, both drivers went to the stewards, who judged that reigning British F3 champion Nasr was to blame for the incident. He has been given a five-place grid penalty, which will move him to the back of the grid when he had been due to start on the penultimate row.
