F1 officials have excluded both Saubers from the results of the Australian Grand Prix.

In a remarkable post-race development, the Sauber duo rookie Sergio Perez and team-mate Kamui Kobayashi were both excluded from the race results due to what the FIA described as a technical infringement, believed to relate to the rear wing.

Perez and Kobayashi had finished seventh and eighth, but those two spots are now taken up by Ferrari's Felipe Massa and Toro Rosso's Sebastien Buemi.

The FIA's decision means Scotland's Paul di Resta takes a point on his debut with Force India for tenth place, finishing behind team-mate Adrian Sutil.
