Artem Severiukhin: A FIA investigation is underway into Russian karting champion's gesture at Portimao
According to an official press release from the FIA, action will be taken in response to the Roman salute gesture made by the Russian driver during the awards ceremony.
In the meantime, his Team, Ward Racing - historic and well known Swedish racing team - states through a press release on its social media profiles that in addition to condemning the driver's gesture in the most total and complete way, it has immediately terminated its contract with the winner of Round 1 of the European Championship in the OK category. In the same press release, Ward Racing shares a series of considerations on the situation involving Russia and Ukraine, underlining how the boy's gesture is to be considered unsportsmanlike and as an unacceptable violation of the moral codes that sport must observe in all circumstances.
