That 'Bloke' u r referring to, just happens to be 2 time world champion and one of the finest driver in F1. Unfortunately, it was the machinery he was driving, that failed him. He has beaten Schumi in spectacular fashion at various times in his career.

I honestly think that Hakkinen turned out to be a pretty smart guy. Being an integral part of the development process, he must have seen the disastrous drop in performance that awaited Mclaren.

In an interview to ITV-f1, he mentioned how F1 demands you to give you 100% each and every day of testing, race weekends and other development work. He admitted that he was no longer able to achieve that, and was surprised at Schumachers motivation and determination levels .

Ummm Tom I am myself a big MS fan but then I also cant help being a fan of a certain bloke from Finland. Mika was one of the finest drivers around. MS and Mika have had the best of battles on track and both had a mutual respect for one another. Who can forget that awesome overtaking move on Schumi at Spa 2000 with Zontas BAR in the way .. also poor Mikas last lap on the Spanish GP.It wasnt because of MS that he left but then what could he do if the machinery failed him. In 2001 he was struggling to finish a race leave alone win. I'd love to see Mika behind the wheel of an F1 car but I guess thats a bit impossible at this point of time.

Mika we miss you!!!

Tom,
*
Dude man if you thought Mika quit due to MS then lemme tell u he's one of the few people who could atchually give MS a fight,
Like Dippy, mentioned Spa 2000 can't be forgotton,
Also a very calm guy,
Hardly was into any crap,
Man before you say that his a** got kicked,
Remember he was one of the last few good guys who quit when he cudnt give it a 100%

go to www.mika-hakkinen.de and read an interview of his and u'll know what he is all about,

lets be realistic......managed to read a few line of his boring i/w
he himself says that the old guys like DC keep up with the new boys like
kimi,trulli,alonso...etc

infact i would like to see Hakkinen come back and drive for McLAren.
Would nice to see his as$ get whipped all over the track...he...he..

Well guys lets keep this discussion sporty. Both the drivers are great in their own respect. Lets not start fights here. Lets not talk bout the @#$ getting whipped. Both men are true sportsmen in F1 and lets all be sporty here as well.

Cheers

Hey....this is a perfectly healthy discussion man!
Sorry if I offended any Mika fans. But after such a long break do u really think it feasible for Mika to return to McLaren at this stage?

valid point.. what makes you say that he cant? he was and had good talents so if he gets a good car like schumi.. why not, it might take couple of practice session and 1 or 2 races.. why not.. lets have some good races.. at last..

Nope. With Kimi and JPM, Ron Dennis has got a dream combination for 2005. Also, Mika is surely out of form after such a long break from F1. He was terribly tired at the end of 2001 too!

Exactly my point!! He was a really good driver, but, it would take an Herculean effort comeback to F1 and then try to make it to the top.

Its good to see that Tom agrees with me on this point atleast.

The Spa-ovetake in 2000 was arguably the best overtake by Mika in his Career and definitely one of the best in racing history.
