For the 2009 season, the FIA are making public the weights of all cars ahead of the race start to help give an idea of relative fuel loads. The cars that made Q3 are weighed after qualifying, while the weights of the remaining cars must be declared by their teams shortly after the session.

Below is the provisional grid for the Singapore Grand Prix with each car's weight. Note - Brawn GP’s Rubens Barrichello has dropped five places after he was penalized for changing his car’s gearbox.

BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld will start from the pit lane after his car was found to be underweight following qualifying, due to the wrong ballast weights being fitted. The team subsequently decided to replace the German's engine and gearbox for the race. He had originally qualified eighth.
