Raikkonen fined for pit lane speeding

Kimi Raikkonen has been given a fine of 400 euros (340 pounds) by the FIA for speeding in the pit lane during Friday practice at the Buddh International Circuit.

The Lotus driver, who ended the day eighth on the combined timesheets, was caught at 83.4 km/h (51.8 mph) in the first session, 3.4 km/h (2.1 mph) over the speed limit.

The standard pit lane limit was reduced from 100 km/h (62.1 mph) to 80 km/h (49.7 mph) in Hungary, after Mark Webber's dramatic pit lane incident at the Nürburgring.
