Hakkinen goes into management
Mika Hakkinen is to begin a new role in driver management. The Formula 1 World Champion of 1998 and 1999 has joined Aces Management Group, where he will work alongside his long-time friend and manager, Didier Coton to find and nurture new, young driving talent. The new role will complement Hakkinen™s existing commitments as Brand Ambassador for various companies with which he has had associations in the past.
"I understand what it takes to arrive at the top and how vital it is to a sportsman's career to have a close group of trusted professionals around him," said Hakkinen. "I can't wait to share what I learned winning two world titles, with ambitious and talented young drivers."
