Salo arrested for tax fraud

F1 driver turned commentator Mika Salo spent two days in custody at the end of last month, the Finnish newspaper Suomen Kuvalehti reports.

The report said the 46-year-old, who last raced in F1 for Toyota in 2002 and is now a pundit on Finnish television MTV3, is facing charges for tax fraud.

He was reportedly arrested at Helsinki-Vantaa airport after returning from the recent Singapore grand prix.

An official said: "The suspects deny committing any crime."

Salo would not comment.
