    I watched Finnish documentary about Mika's way to twice world champion. I have watch many times Michael Schumacher and Mika's fights on tracks. Michael has said Mika was the best opponent for him. Mika's DTM seasons were nice to watch also. I think this first namesake for me "Flying Finn" needs own thread.

    Fair enough, but he's not really a talking point these days is he?

    Interesting thing that you started this thread now. I was watching the 1993-1995 seasons recently, and I was never aware that he used to be so shocking at being lapped. Whenever a leader tried to lap him, you could almost guarantee a full lap behind the Finn.

    Perhaps I never knew it because I only remembered his races where he almost lapped everybody else. He was just immense when he was on it...

    This guy is a living legend. Too bad that he retired so early but I guess the Mclaren was too unreliable. Imagine Kimi and Hakkinen on the same team!

    +infinity for this thread! :) :) :) :) :)

    I am still speculating on which team to like more: Mercedes or McLaren.

    I became a Silver Arrows fan after Hamilton left McLaren.

    I base my team loyalty on Hakkinen's ties.

    I even have my router's password based off of him.

    What was so great was in 2001, a couple of weeks after 9/11, he made me very happy when he won his last race at the U.S. Grand Prix. :) :) :) :)

    Anyway, Mika Hakkinen is a spokesman for Mercedes, yet, he associates with McLaren.

    I don't know whether to like one or the other or like 'em both. I went over this on a thread in the past, but, I didn't clarify further till now.

    EDIT - Sadly, I didn't get to watch him in DTM. :( :( :( :(
