Born on the 28th of September 1968, Mika Hakkinen was Michael Schumacher’s greatest rival, and the only driver the great German feared.

MH : “In the karting time, I knew he was good, but I never thought he was better than me”.

MH : “Challenging Michael … it was natural for me to beat him”.

Twice a world champion in 1998 and 1999 with McLaren-Mercedes, he twice beat his great rival before the steamroller Ferrari starts.

20 victories, 26 poles, 51 podiums for the legendary Finn.
