Glock and Buemi handed grid penalties

Spa-Francorchamps: Virgin Racing`s Timo Glock and Toro Rosso`s Sebastien Buemi were both handed grid penalties for the Belgian Grand Prix after qualifying breaches on Saturday.

Germany`s Glock was handed a five place demotion for impeding Hispania`s Japanese Sakon Yamamoto, usually the slowest driver on track.

Switzerland`s Buemi received a three place penalty for impeding Mercedes` Nico Rosberg -- who himself collected a five place drop for an unscheduled gearbox change after final practice.

Adding to the general re-jig, Mercedes` Michael Schumacher carried a 10-place penalty on the grid with him from the previous Hungarian Grand Prix where he almost drove Williams` Rubens Barrichello into a wall.
