Rumour: Steward passes information about Hamilton's punishment to TV station

It appears that the Finnish steward Mika Salo has passed on information about Lewis Hamilton's penalty to the Finnish TV channel C More. The channel reported that the penalty would come for Hamilton well before it was officially announced.

Finnish television

Mika Salo is said to have passed on information to C More, Motorsport-Total.com, well before the penalty was announced by F1. Ten minutes before it was announced by the stewards that Hamilton would be punished twice five seconds, the commentators already reported that the punishment would come.

What is even more striking is that the investigation had not been completed at that time. The Finnish channel also reported that Hamilton would receive two penalty points twice on his super-licence. These had initially only become two and it was announced earlier this evening that they would be waived altogether.

More occurrences

Incidentally, this is not the first time that important information has been forwarded at an early stage. Salo himself has worked as a commentator, and during his duties as a steward it is more common for Finnish television to have this kind of information earlier. If the rumour is true, the FIA may intervene.
