Häkkinen available for Hamilton management
3 March 2011 – Former World Champion Mika Häkkinen has said that his driver management services will always be available for Lewis Hamilton, with the current McLaren driver currently on the lookout and expecting to make an announcement imminently.
After collecting his pair of world titles with the Woking team back-to-back in 1998 and 1999, Häkkinen’s Formula 1 win tally rose to 20 before the Finn effectively retired from the sport at the end of 2001, choosing not to return from a year’s sabbatical.
“All the reports that you saw linking me and my management to Lewis have been purely speculation,” the 42-year-old clarified in an interview with India’s F1Pulse.
“We have known Lewis for many years and he knows us. So he knows that if he needs something, we will be there. For the rest, it is entirely his choice.”
