According to the Finnish media, former F1 driver, Mika Salo, has been found to have "large amounts" of carbon fibre dust in his lungs, during a routine medical check-up.

Consequently, the FIA is also to examine the former Lotus, Tyrrell, Arrows, Sauber, BAR and Ferrari driver, in order to establish whether other race drivers could be at risk.

"There was really a lot of that dust in my lungs," Salo told Ilta-Sanomat. "If I have this much of it, how much will Michael Schumacher, who has driven 10 years longer than me, have?"
