2 times Formula 1 drivers champ Mika Häkkinen had great success and though times in F1. His main rival was Michael Schumacher.

He started his racing career at the age of five (1973) with karting. It turned out he had talent and skill. He won his first race at the age of 7. He then took part of regional and national karting championships in Finland and at the age of 10 he started to win each championship he entered until 1986.

After karting he got into open wheel racing. In 1987 he took part of 3 Formula Ford 1600 championship in Scandinavia, the Finish, Swedish and Nordic championship. He won all 3 championships.

In 1988 he entered the Opel Lotus Euroseries Championship and the British GM Euroseries. That season he won the Opel Lotus Euroseries Championship and finished 2nd in the British GM Euroseries.

After this adventure he stepped up to the British Formula 3 championship and could really shape up his skills in 1989 and 1990. In 1989 he had a learning curve and finished 7th in the championship. In 1990 he already was used to the much faster Formula 3 cars and won the championship for West Surrey Racing. This resulted in a Formula 1 contract with Lotus for the next season.

Mika's Formula 1 career

In 1991 Mika Häkkinen started his first Formula 1 race in Phoenix for the 1991 US Grand Prix. He qualified 13th on the grid in his Lotus and had to retire, due to an Judd engine failure. He had 3 different team mates that season, Julian Bailey, Johnny Herbert and Michael Bartels.  Häkkinen scored his first and only points that 1991 F1 season in his 3rd race for Lotus by finishing 5th in the San Marino Grand Prix. He started the race on Imola circuit as 25th! He ended his first season on 16th place on the 1991 drivers championship table.

In 1992 he stayed at Lotus and had a much better season. The Judd engine was changed to a Ford engine and picked up regular points.  He only had Johnny Herbert as team mate and the Lotus 107 with Ford engine had a very fragile gearbox and engine. Mika retired 6 times, 2 times with gearbox problems and 2 times with engine failure. Although Herbert out qualified Hakkinen with 9-7, Mika scored more points than Johnny, because Herbert had to retire 11 times!. Mika scored 11 points in total to end on 8th place of the 1992 drivers championship table.

1993 - 2001 at McLaren

During the 1992 season, Häkkinen wanted to move to the quicker Williams car, but got into a contract dispute with Lotus. Häkkinen, who was under contract to Lotus, opted to join Williams, but that Lotus team principal Peter Collins would veto the Williams team entry if they had signed Häkkinen.

Mika then tried to get a seat at Ligier although his Lotus contract contained a clause of which his manager Keke Rosberg disagreed. He later approached the McLaren team and principal Ron Dennis signed the contract.

The dispute eventually went to the F1 Contract Recognition Board, who ruled in favour of McLaren after two days of deliberation.

He still could not drive in 1993, because McLaren had hired Michael Andretti to race and Ayrton Senna was their number 1 driver. It was until Andretti had enough of being beaten by Senna and left after finishing 3rd at the Italian GP to drive IndyCar again.

Hakkinen at last could drive for McLaren for at Portuguese Grand Prix. MIka Hakkinen was very determent and even out qualified 3 times Formula 1 Drivers Champion Ayrton Senna in his first race.

In the race he drove second for a long time and could even have won his first race for McLaren if he hadn't crashed into the barrier in the last corner of the Estoril circuit by trying to pass Jean Alesi. In the last race of the season at Japan he scored his first Formula 1 podium by finishing 3rd.

McLaren filled up the seat left by Senna who moved to Williams, with Martin Brundle. Mika had a thought season with the McLaren MP4/9 which was powered by Peugeot.

He got a race ban for the German Grand Prix because he collided with to many other drivers. The engine also wasn't very reliable and he retired 4 times with engine failure. Nevertheless the engine seemed to be very powerful and he did score 6 podiums to end as 4th on the 1994 F1 drivers championship table.

In the 1995 had a sever crash in practice for the Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide which almost killed him.

It took 6 seasons before Mika Häkkinen won his first Formula 1 race. The 1997 European Grand Prix was his first F1 victory at Jerez. It was also the race where MIchael Schumacher got his heavy penalty for deliberately driving into Jacques Villeneuve's Williams to prevent him from passing and winning the 1997 drivers championship.

It looked like the winning of his first race change everything for Mika. He kept on winning the next 2 seasons and he even became F1 drivers world champion in 1998 and 1999. He was the only driver who was able to defeat Micheal Schumacher on his way to his glory days at Ferrari. Hakkinen and Schumacher were able to put each-other under enormous pressure. The were fears competitors but also showed a leverl of mutual respect never seen before in F1.

The most unbelievable pass ever is the pass made by Hakkinen on Schumacher in Belgium. Hakkinen was chasing the Ferrari of Schumacher through Au Rouge and on the Camel straight they lapped a back-marker and Schumi and Hakkinen passed him an both side in which Hakkinen also passed Schumacher.

After the very strong season for Schumacher at Ferrari 2001 F1 season in which the German won 9 races and Hakkinen only 2, he decided to quit Formula 1 to enjoy and have more time with his family.
