Dennis Keen to Keep Coulthard and Hakkinen

Thursday May 17th, 2001

McLaren boss Ron Dennis admitted he is keen to retain both David Coulthard and Mika Hakkinen for a record seventh consecutive season.

Coulthard and two-time world champion Hakkinen already hold the record of Grands Prix contested as teammates, having competed for the Woking-based outfit since the start of the 1996 season, and Dennis said he sees no reason to change the driver line-up in 2002.

"We will always take and have always taken the best drivers available," Dennis told Autosport. "There is no reason whatsoever to change our existing driver line-up - they are doing an excellent job. I can't see the circumstances under which that would change."

Coulthard is currently second in the Drivers' Championship, while Hakkinen is a massive 34 points behind the Scot after the first six rounds of the season.
