FIA investigates claims

The FIA has confirmed that there is an investigation under way regarding, what the spokesperson called "alleged incidents at a previous FIA Formula 1 World Championship event".

The confirmation comes following reports on Brazilian TV that Renault driver Nelson Piquet was ordered to crash by the Renault team to enable his team-mate Fernando Alonso to take advantage of an early pit stop in order to win a surprising victory.
