Steward Salo admits Hamilton penalties harsh

Mika Salo has admitted he thought Lewis Hamilton’s penalties at Sochi were “harsh”. Salo was also criticised for allegedly leaking information about the penalties to the Finnish broadcaster C More. Now, he is again defending the stewards’ decision amid claims the penalties assigned to Hamilton for illegal pre-race practice starts were too harsh. “After the race, we were showed a radio conversation between Hamilton and the team which said that the team had given permission for the practice start to take place,” Salo said. However, Salo hit back at the notion that Hamilton is routinely targeted by the FIA. And the drivers should know that I am the steward judging from the driver’s perspective.
