Turkish GP organisers pay FIA fine

Turkish Grand Prix organisers have paid their part of the record fine imposed by Formula One's ruling body following this year's race.

Organisers were handed a $5 million fine last month after a podium controversy at the race in August. The fine was appealed, with a verdict expected on 8 November, when the International Court of Appeal will meet in Paris.

Despite the appeal, the organisers of the Turkish Grand Prix, MSO, have paid $2.5 million, removing their liability.

The remaining $2.5 million must be paid the National Sporting Authority of Turkey, TOSFED.
