The organizers of Turkish GP has been fined US$ 5 Million by The World Motor Sports Council. This is by far the biggest fine every imposed in the history of motorsports.

A quick recollection, the organizers came under heavy firing from FIA when Mr Mehmet Ali Talat, who presented the winner’s trophy to Felipe Massa, was introduced as president of the Turkish Cypriot "state" which is in fact only recognised by Turkey and no other nation.
