We spent much of the last weekend with the Flying Finn as he visited India to promote his Never Drink & Drive campaign. We had the former World Champion on our Facebook Live show as well on our podcast and yes, we did #JoinThePact in Hakkinen’s presence. Have you? (Here’s where you can: https://www.liveinstyle.com/johnniewalkerthejourney)
In this week’s special episode, we get Mika Hakkinen to review the 2017 Formula 1 Season, his views on the current superstar drivers (Hamilton, Vettel, Verstappen, etc.) and what he believes the future of his Finnish compatriots (Bottas and Raikkonen) will be. Also, what does he make of Fernando Alonso’s quest to be the “world’s best racer”?
Apart from the current season, we discuss Hakkinen’s career – his first win and what was his reaction when he lost most of his trophies to a house fire in 2008! Finally, is a McLaren team management role on Hakkinen’s mind, and outside of Formula 1, who is his most challenging rival? Tune in!
