F1 2016 Racing Problem?

Hi, I'm relatively new to the entire F1 world. But I really enjoy it now and am looking forward to the 2017 season. I have a question about career mode though in the F1 2016 game. I will sometimes win in qualifying rounds, but then when the race starts I will be lined up as #5 or so. Why Is this? Thanks

    Maybe you are picking up a grid penalty for colliding with other cars or cutting corners. Less likely but also possible, you could be breaking parc ferme. Parc Ferme essentially means once you create a certain set-up in practice, it is illegal to change those settings in qualifying, with the consequence being a grid penalty.
