Red Bull's David Coulthard will be hoping for better luck on Saturday after enduring a frustrating first day of practice at Istanbul Park. Coulthard was restricted to 35 laps - 12 shy of team mate Mark Webber - due to an engine fire at the end of the first session. A fuel leak on his RB3 sparked the flames, which caused damage to the car's electrical systems and wiring looms, prompting the Red Bull engineers to swap out its Renault V8 in a bid to try and get Coulthard out for the second session.
