Mika backs Kimi for title


Kimi Raikkonen enjoyed plenty of blonde haired support in Hungary; thousands of Finns travel to Budapest for their closest thing to a ‘home’ race. Among the friendly Finnish faces this weekend was friend and double champion, for McLaren no less Mika Hakkinen.Now a ‘DTM’ touring car driver, the 36-year-old told the Telegraph newspaper that the man who succeeded him in 2002 is ‘back in the championship.

“He is a driver of enormous ability and is respected by the people at McLaren, especially Ron Dennis,” Mika said. “No one knows better than me how important that is. Kimi will be Finland’s next world champion – if not this year, then next.”
