Thanks to a very awesome close friend of mine for buying me this book. I have waited to get hold of this for YEARS and I am so glad to have read it.

Incase anyone doesn't know, I'm a big Formula One fan. And I got into Formula One by accident and I have to thank Mika for helping me realise my love for this amazing sport.

Written before he won any world championships, this charts his early career and gives a good insight into who he is. Unlike some biographies that write about a character from a distant perspective (or even some autobiogrpahies which avoid negatives) this book is written with Mika. Christopher Hilton interviews Hakkinen, and those closest to him, to provide an intimate look at the popular racer. He isn't an angel but he still seems like one!
