Hakkinen Looks to Add to Canadian Success

Tuesday June 19th, 2001

Finn Mika Hakkinen is excited at the prospect of racing on what he considers 'home turf' this weekend at the European Grand Prix at the German Nurburgring circuit.

Hakkinen is hoping that the fans of the German Mercedes-Benz engines, which power his McLaren car, will cheer him on to a better finishing position than his third place in Canada at the last race.

"I am looking forward to building on the result I achieved in Canada," said Hakkinen. "The entire team has been working hard to achieve the desired outcome at the Nurburgring, where the atmosphere is always fantastic as it's the home race for Mercedes-Benz and we always have a lot of crowd support.

"I enjoy driving at the circuit and am aiming to go one better than last year's second position."

Hakkinen, who has scored only eight points so far this season, is 50 points behind championship leader Michael Schumacher.
