Mika Hakkinen

Twice winner of the FIA Formula One World Championship, Mika Hakkinen won the hearts of fans around the world with his speed, focus and dramatic driving style. Famously described by 7-times World Champion Michael Schumacher as being the only driver he truly feared, Mika’s battles with a German ace are still talked about in F1 circles.

Actively involved in the sport including as a brand ambassador for McLaren, the team with which he won both titles, Mika enjoys talking about the importance of team work, focus, mindfulness and the combination of talent and technology required to win. As a 20-times Grand Prix winner, he knows more than most about what it takes to win - and keep on winning.

One of the sport’s real superstars, Mika enjoys sharing the experiences gained during his formidable career, including surviving a life-threatening accident at the 1995 Australian Grand Prix. Originally team mate to the legendary Ayrton Senna, his is a story worth listening to.
