You can find FIA's press information here:
http://www.fia.com/mediacentre/Press_In ... urkey.html

Here's the technical report:
http://www.fia.com/resources/documents/ ... Report.pdf

It doesn't seem to be available before Sunday, though.

Anyway, those facts can always be checked there from FIA's pages. :wink:

Slightly off topic, but I once found on the FIA website there was a page for reach Grand Prix with all the stewards decisions.
Anyone know where I can find that again?
