Update | Salo points to Verstappen’s example after Hamilton’s statement or something


The Finnish TV broadcaster C. More reported the penalty that Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton received during the Russian Grand Prix ten minutes before it was made official. Rumor has it that flight attendant Mika Salo passed on the information.

Hamilton received two penalties for making a test start in the wrong places during the lap to the grid. During the race, the incident was investigated by the stewards and the Briton was given a five-second time penalty twice. It was remarkable that Finnish television was already able to report the sentence while the investigation was still in full swing.

The Finnish channel also reported that Hamilton would receive four penalty points. In the end he only got two, and after the race it was revealed that he didn’t get one because his team took the blame. Instead of the penalty points, Mercedes will now be fined 25 thousand euros.

Not the first time

It is not the first time that important information is passed on at an early stage. It has happened before that Finnish television has this kind of information earlier when Salo is a steward. The former Formula 1 driver has also been a television commentator himself. If the rumor is correct, the FIA ​​can intervene. (Photo: Mercedes AMG F1)
