Fisichella in trouble
Force India F1 driver Giancarlo Fisichella started off badly in Turkey on Friday morning when he left the pitlane and drove through a red light at the very beginning of the first practice on Friday morning. The result of this was a three-place penalty on the grid.
This is a blow to the team which had hoped to build on its recent development to get better grid positions which in turn gives the driver a much better chance of scoring points, given the difficulty in overtaking in modern F1.
