Haug Hails Hakkinen's "Great Win"

Sunday August 13th, 2000

Mercedes-Benz motorsport chief Norbert Haug on Sunday hailed Mika Hakkinen's victory in the Hungarian Grand Prix as one of the greatest of his career.

Haug said that defending champion Hakkinen, who beat Michael Schumacher into second place, had made his triumph look easy.

"Mika had a great race," he said. "His victory may have looked easy, but it was tough to achieve and in my view this was one of his best drives ever.

"He now really deserves to be the leader in the drivers' world championship."

The Finn, whose win took him past Schumacher at the head of the championship for the first time this season, now has 64 points to the German's 62.
