Aki Hintsa revolutionised F1 says Salo

Dr Aki Hintsa's legacy can still be seen up and down the F1 grid, according to former driver Mika Salo.

It emerged this week that, after a battle with cancer, the 58-year-old former McLaren doctor has passed away.

Dr Hintsa worked with several F1 drivers according to his philosophy of unlocking the full potential from human performance.

"Aki revolutionised F1 in this way," former Ferrari driver and F1 pundit and steward Salo told the Finnish broadcaster MTV.

"He brought a whole new perspective to many coaches who are still here. Aki changed the mentality for many of the drivers," he added.
