Kimi Raikkonen's car has failed post-qualifying scrutineering, the Finn's Lotus having failed a floor deflection test.

"After the qualifying practice session an asymmetric LHS front floor deflection test was carried out on car numbers 7 (Raikkonen) and 11 (Hulkenberg) according to Article 3.17.5 of the 2013 FIA Formula One Technical Regulations," said the FIA's Formula 1 technical delegate Jo Bauer in a post session report.

"Car number 11 was found in conformity with Article 3.17.5 of the 2013 FIA Formula One Technical Regulations. However, Car number 7 did not comply with Article 3.17.5 of the 2013 FIA Formula One Technical Regulations as the front floor deflected more than 5mm vertically when the load was applied vertically to it at the point which lies 100mm of car centre line on the LHS.

"I am referring this matter to the stewards for their consideration."
