Well I dare say the BMW money would have paid for Turkington too.

How did you spot that??
Tom Coronel was given a hefty fine by the FIA for posting a short clip of him celebrating on the cool down lap at the Nürburgring last year. Let's see if someone at the MSA follows this forum.

Maybe worth knowing if there was permission asked before jumping to conclusions. After all it was media day and the picture was taken during tracking shots.

Even so, it's a bit of silly image to publish during a time when the current Think! campaign is about the use of handheld phones while driving.

Would you say the same to Terry Grant when he gets out of a donuting car ?

Context is key here. And this and the original post are taking the subject way way out of it.

No - because Terry Grant is a stunt driver, and the act of performing a doughnut would be part of his entertainment.

But - when a professional car driver performs a doughnut, or any other stunt, it would usually be accompanied by a message that it was carried out in controlled conditions and should not be tried at home.

This was not a deliberate stunt performed by a driver - this was a major star in BTCC (some would argue a household name) pictured using a mobile phone whilst at the controls of a car. Whatever context it is in, it surely is not the right message to send to spectators?

Geez, give the guy a break....

In the Netherlands we have a saying called 'putting salt on all snails', which roughly translates into 'looking for all the little things to comment on'. This is a bit like that imho...

Considering a Dutch touring car driver has already been fined for such an action, Plato should know better.

There's a difference between a live track and a photo op in my opinion. Though Coronels action didn't bother me either.
