Marko M says:

In yours opinion, who is best Finnish F1-World Champion driver, and why? Keke Rosberg (he is WDC 1982), Mika Häkkinen (he is WDC 1998 and 1999), or Kimi Räikkönen (he is WDC 2007).

MarsHDTV says:

The McLaren did most of the work.

Nick Markovic says:

The Japanese GP should still be the last track in the season

Derrick Akankwasa says:

Who is the narrator behind this? She is incredible. Anybody knows?

Miguel Ángel says:

A great champion and a great gentleman. It's almost impossible not like the guy.

Aaron Sorensen says:

That wreck in his coffin was a blip compared to some of today’s wrecks.

Miss- H0T Girl-C0me 0ver L!ve says:

Gotta love Mika. He's so fun to watch, even today when he gets interviews! He's the polar opposite of Kimi. I mean Kimi is fun on his own special way; but Mika knows how to make interviews interesting and amazing with his sense of humor.

Marko M says:

Mika Häkkinen and McLaren-Mercedes is as legendary a combination as Ayrton Senna and McLaren-Honda. Or Michael Schumacher and Ferrari.

Ice Maze says:

Mclaren champion again thank you Hakkinen.

Sagar Kalasa says:

Rithvik says:

No wins for 5+ years, Playing second fiddle for so many years, seeing your worst enemies win championships and trophies, plus fighting for life after the injury. After all this, making a comeback of a lifetime and destroying everyone on the field winning 2 championships and 20+ race wins. WHAT A FRICKING LEGEND THIS MAN. GOAT

Ziya C says:

When two racers respect each other and show that in every way they interact then what they do on the track will be on the very limit, and that's how two of the all time best behaved. Personally a Shumi/ferrari fan, but Mika's speed, grit, lightning reactions , wit, and cool hair were quality's I admired then and still do today. An exceptionally talented lad with the golden loughs of an angel.

Ziya C says:

When Senna praised Mika, everybody knew that he was special. I wish Mika would have won some more races and at least 3/4 world championships. He was only guy who was in the same level as Goat The Schumi.

TwentyTwo Edits says:

I love the way he says "yea im pleased.. I'm pleased. Could have been better"

Ziya C says:

His career isn’t over, he’s currently in a sabbatical. He’ll come back

Ziya C says:

Mika and his "West" McLaren Mercedes was my introduction to the world of Formula 1 during my childhood.

Ziya C says:

The late 90’s/early 2000’s were the best era of rivalry. The mutual respect between Mika and The Michael was legendary, and the fans weren’t as toxic as it is now.

Ziya C says:

You bring out the best in other people.

Ziya C says:

One of the absolute best and most respected drivers to ever grace F1. His rivalry with Schumacher was the peak of the sport for me.

Ziya C says:

Thank you for being such a competitor! Like with Alonso, "The Michael" was forced to give it everything. I really enjoyed the time as a Schumacher fan. Great memories to a golden time in F1.

Ziya C says:

I'm an enormous Schumacher fan, but you gotta respect Mika and their rivalry.

Ziya C says:

When Senna praised Mika, everybody knew that he was special. I wish Mika would have won some more races and at least 3/4 world championships. He was only guy who was in the same level as Goat The Schumi.

Ziya C says:

I grew up with Mika and Michael battling it out. Was amazing to see. They both where something else.
