No rest for Hakkinen as he prepares for French Grand Prix
MIKA HAKKINEN will be working through the night with his engineers to try and get his McLaren-Mercedes car at optimum performance after a disappointing qualifying session for the French Grand Prix.
Hakkinen was not happy with the set-up of his car as he failed to match the pace of team-mate David Coulthard and pole-sitter Michael Schumacher. He eventually snatched fourth position on the grid.
"I have to sit down with my engineers and find out what the problem is and find a solution," said Hakkinen. "I am confident we will find a solution and I am optimistic for the race.
On the one hand I could say that it was a very disappointing session for me, but on the other hand it is better than last year when I qualified 14th."
