Hungarian Grand Prix stewards have cancelled Scott Speed’s three fastest qualifying times as punishment for impeding another driver during Saturday’s session.

The move means the Toro Rosso driver will drop a place on the grid for Sunday’s race, starting from 20th rather than 19th position, ahead of Super Aguri’s Sakon Yamamoto and Midland’s Christijan Albers.
