Salo denies leaking Hamilton penalty verdict

Mika Salo has hit back at claims he inappropriately leaked information about Lewis Hamilton’s Sochi penalties to a television broadcaster. “There is no official information yet, but it will probably be two five second penalties and four points on his licence, which means that according to our information, Hamilton is not driving at the Nurburgring,” Juusela said at the time. But it raised strong suspicions that Mika Salo, a former F1 driver who was a steward at Sochi, leaked the information to Juusela, his C More colleague. Bild newspaper suspected Salo will not be invited to serve as steward again. Salo said he was similarly in the hot-seat after a stewards’ decision in 2017 that cost Max Verstappen a podium. “It was not Mika Salo, but as you may understand, I will not comment on this,” he insisted.
