(cafetheology.org) – Ex-Formula 1 World Champion Mika Häkkinen is convinced that he would have been at the zenith of his career in the 1998 season. The Finn describes the first of two titles of his career as a "fantastic time" in a Facebook live interview on the official Formula One presence. His euphoria regarding the year is due to Stardesigner Adrian Newey, who put the McLaren MP4-13 on his wheels. "My car was brilliant," enthused Häkkinen from the silver arrow. The bolide would have been like velvet and silk, he emphasized: "He was so fantastic that he always did exactly what I wanted – "Mika Häkkinen recalls," The car was just as easy for me. "In 1998, Häkkinen beat his Ferrari rival Michael Schumacher with 100: 86 World Cup points. He won eight out of 16 Grands Prix. A season later, he won the crown, but won only on five occasions, with just two points ahead of Eddie Irvine at the top of the closing table. To date, the Finn is also celebrated for his overtaking maneuver against Schumacher on the Kemmel straight in Spa-Francorchamps, which succeeded him in the year 2000.
