Button - and Barrichello - to start from back after engine change 26 Aug 2007
Hondas Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button will start Sundays Turkish Grand Prix from the back row of the grid following post-qualifying engine changes on both their cars. They had qualified 14th and 15th respectively.
Button made it back to the pits at the end of the second qualifying phase, but a loss of power from the RA107s V8 meant the team decided to swap it out for the race. News of Barrichellos change, meanwhile, did not come until Sunday morning, meaning it is most likely a precautionary measure.
Button will now line up 21st for the start of this afternoons 58-lap race, with Barrichello alongside him in 22nd place.
