Hispania Racing drivers Tonio Liuzzi and Narain Karthikeyan attended a training session with Turkish football team Besiktas today, with Liuzzi making his best attempt at a passing shot.

The pair were allowed a bit of time to play on the pitch, as well as watching the squad train for an upcoming match.

Meanwhile, HRT are keen to close the gap to Virgin Racing out on track this weekend, with Liuzzi saying: "Our target for Turkey is to verify that our updates are working as per plan, closing the gap on the leader and obviously finishing the race ahead of our direct competitors. If everything goes to plan, I think Hispania Racing can surprise a lot of people by closing the gap considerably with respect to other teams, thereby showing how serious our intentions of growing are."
