Trulli fined for confrontation

FIA deems no action needed over lap one accident in Brazil, but Jarno Trulli's actions earn him a fine
Jarno Trulli has been hit with his second reprimand of the Brazilian GP weekend for his actions following the opening lap accident during the penultimate race of the F1 season.

Trulli, who had been reprimanded for impeding Sebastien Buemi in qualifying, was clearly angered by the incident, which saw him go off into the barriers following contact with the Force India of Adrian Sutil.

After climbing from his car, Trulli ran up to the Force India to confront Sutil and then hit out at his rival for his driving following the race.

After investigating the incident, stewards deemed that no further action was required and that it had been a 'racing incident'.

However, Trulli was found to have breached the FIA International Sporting Code for 'failing to leave the track as required by the marshals immediately after the incident and aggressively confronting Adrian Sutil'.

As a result, Trulli has now been hit with a further reprimand and also fined $10,000.
