Vettel fined for speeding
Singapore - Triple world champion Sebastian Vettel has been fined €200 (R2 630) for speeding in the pitlane at the Singapore Grand Prix - an amount he earns in less than 10 minutes.
The young German was zapped clocking 61.7km/h late on Friday, just nudging over the 60km/h allowed for free practice sessions.
Vettel earns a reported €12 million a year, which boils down to €32 376 a day or €22 a minute. But he's worth it - the 26-year-old is firmly on course for his fourth straight world title.
Caterham driver Giedo van der Garde was clocked doing 69.1km/h in the pitlane during Friday's second practice session, earning a slightly weightier €1 000 penalty.
