Czech railway inspectors are investigating a possible breach of safety regulations by the national rail operator Czech Railways which allegedly let former Formula One racer Emerson Fittipaldi drive a high-speed Pendolino train, the iDnes server reported on Friday. iDnes said it had filed a complaint with railway inspectors based on a reader's observation. It brought pictures of Fittipaldi, the 1972 and 1974 Formula One champion, sitting in the driver's compartment. The server quotes a Czech Railways spokesman as saying that "Mr Fittipaldi only sat in the driver's compartment to pose for a photographer but certainly did not drive".
