Mika Häkkinen is one of the few drivers from the modern F1 era that’s already classed as an icon. Michael Schumacher was once famously quoted as saying that Mika was the only driver that he ever really feared, the two men had battled fiercely over the years, often taking each other out of races.

This is a 45 minute interview with Hakkinen, it covers his career rather well and also goes into detail about some of his more dramatic accidents. If, like me, you’re pining for the Formula 1 season to get restarted, hit play. It helps with the withdrawal symptoms.
