Kimi Räikkönen is €430 poorer – small change, really! – after copping a fine for speeding in the pit lane during practice for this weekend’s Indian Grand Prix.
The Lotus driver, who finished eighth-fastest in Friday’s second practice session, was clocked driving at 83.4km/h (51.8mph) in the first practice session, 3.4km/h (2.1mph) over the pit lane’s speed limit.
The standard pit lane speed limit was reduced to 80km/h from 100km/h from this year’s Hungarian Grand Prix, following Mark Webber’s pit lane incident at the preceding German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring.
