TYRRELL CONFIRMS SALO FOR THIRD YEAR

"Mika Salo will drive for us in 1997" announced Ken Tyrrell, the Tyrrell Yamaha team principal, today Wednesday 7 August.

Ken continued: "Mika's first season with us last year was a difficult one and he had to experience many of the Grand Prix circuits for the first time. This year, his second with the Tyrrell Yamaha team, has seen Mika secure five race finishes - scoring World Championship points in three of them. We, together with Yamaha, are committed to improving the team's performance and Mika shares that commitment. I am delighted that he is with us for 1997."

"We still have five races remaining of this year's championship and the team will make an announcement concerning our other drivers in due course," he concluded.

Said a smiling Mika Salo: "Great. Our agreement for 1997 is very important for continuity, both for myself and the team. Everybody at Tyrrell and Yamaha are working so hard to achieve better performance. I really look forward to working for the success we all deserve."
