FIA called for Korean fire truck

The FIA have ruled against sanctioning the Korean GP organisers despite a fire truck being sent onto the track while the race was ongoing.


Mark Webber's Red Bull racer caught fire on lap 38 of the grand prix after he was hit by Adrian Sutil's Force India.

The impact punctured the RB9's bodywork and when oil touched the exhaust the car began to go up in flames.

A fire truck was sent to the scene in bizarre circumstances as the race was ongoing and only after the drivers had passed the first corner was the Safety Car deployed.

The FIA later confirmed that race director Charlie Whiting had given the go-ahead for the fire track while white flags were waved.

Section E of article 2.4.5.1 states that "this flag should be waved and is used to indicate to the driver that there is a much slower vehicle on the sector of track controlled by that flag point."

Here's a man with a lot of reasons to be happy
