Monza 2001, sono diventato matto per trovare un biglietto per venirti a vedere per l'ultima volta prima del tuo ritiro dalla formula 1, speravo nella tua vittoria ma dopo soli pochi giri ti sei fermato per un problema alla monoposto, e il mio sogno di vederti sul podio è svanito, svanito come il sogno di poterti vedere e magari stringerti la mano e farmi una foto con te, mi restano comunque queste 2 foto che ho fatto a fine gara quando la tua macchina è stata portata al box, toccarla è stata una emozione grande, spero sempre un giorno di poterti incontrare
Monza 2001, I became crazy to find a ticket to see you for the last time before your withdrawal from Formula 1, I was hoping for your victory but after only a few laps you stopped for a problem with the car, and my dream of see you on the podium vanished, vanished as the dream of seeing you and maybe shake your hand and take a picture with you, I still have these 2 photos that I did at the end of the race when your car was brought to the garage, touch was a great emotion, I always hope one day to meet you
During the Grand Prix of San Marino 1996, Mika Häkkinen failed Mercedes engine, mounted on his McLaren MP4-11. But in the second half of the season it became clear that the British team was gaining strength-Mika in the last seven races four times rose to the podium.
В ходе Гран-при Сан-Марино 1996 года Мику Хаккинена подвел двигатель Mercedes, установленный на его McLaren MP4-11. Но второй половине сезона стало ясно, что британская команда набирает былую силу - Мика в семи последних гонках четыре раза поднялся на подиум.

Excited to announce that I’ll be shooting for @mclaren again this year at Pebble Beach! Even more excited to be working with legend @f1mikahakkinen again as he drives the holy grail of cars, the F1 GTR, at Laguna Seca!
2000 Austrian Grand Prix. The 71-lap race was won by McLaren driver Mika Häkkinen after starting from pole position. His teammate David Coulthard finished second.
As a consequence of the race, Coulthard's second place narrowed the gap to Michael Schumacher in the Drivers' Championship to six points, while Häkkinen's win meant he closed to within two points of Coulthard.
На Гран-при Австрии 2000 года двукратный чемпион мира, пилот Mclaren Мика Хаккинен одержал победу, а его напарник по команде Дэвид Култард занял второе место. Скорость, показанная McLaren MP4-15 в Австрии дала надежду на возобновление реальной борьбы гонщиков Mclaren с Михаэлем Шумахером из Ferrari за чемпионский титул.

It was almost a tie, but 51% of you wanted to see some posts about #F1 history, and what better way to start it off than talking about the single most absurd Sunday in modern racing? Of course we're talking about the 1998 #BelgianGP , which is incidentally the first historic race I've watched, years later, in full.
The "glue gun" track is known for its high speed and unpredictability weather-wise, frequently offering rainy race weekends. Exactly twenty years ago, track conditions were extremely compromised by heavy rain. The starting grid saw a #McLaren 1-2, with #MikaHakkinen taking pole and the #Ferrari of Irvine and #MichaelSchumacher starting P5 and P4.
Despite the horrible conditions, it's lights out without a safety car: this choice by race direction immediately proves to be awful, with #DavidCoulthard 's McLaren literally bouncing on the barrier at Source in lap one and causing the biggest chain collision in F1 history, taking out several cars at a time and fully obstructing the track. A red flag is swiftly called, and the race restarts a while later without four of the previous grid drivers, including an injured #RubensBarrichello .
The second start is no better than the first: Hakkinen spins after a bad start, #JosVerstappen 's engine explodes, most of the drivers are taken out by incidents: a collision between M. Schumacher and Coulthard prompts a huge pit lane fight, with the German literally storming in McLaren's boxes and being dragged away by a desperate #JeanTodt . The safety car is called numerous times and only six drivers manage to complete the race: notably, Damon Hill takes his last F1 win. None of these drivers, however, occupied the first six positions of the Drivers' Standings: 1998 #Spa weekend proved to be uninfluential to the World Title.
Can you think of a race as shocking as Spa 1998? Let me know!
