Vintage F1 Video- Hakkinen Stole The Show!

Article Written by : Legendary Videos

Nowadays, F1 consists of cars full of technological aid and boost systems. The glorious era of F1 was different. Mika Hakkinen and Michael Schumacher were the superstars, who competed for the world title. This moment is the best overcome in F1 history.  Schumi was leading, but his car had wet tyres on almost dried track. He was looking for all the wet spots in order to cool down his tires. If he pushed the tires further, they would have burned out! Mika’s plan started in Eau Rouge, when he pushed the throttle hard. His target was Schumacher’s degraded tires.  Ricardo Zonta’s presence was a big advantage for Hakkinen. He was slower, taking up valuable track space. This was enough to slow down Ferrari. However, Hakkinen made a quick, risky decision! Balls of steel on his behalf! 15 years have passed, but all F1 lovers will remember this unbelievable overtake forever!

That was pretty crazy. Wait until you see this next video below...
