Fans wish Mika a happy holiday

AN estimated 30,000 race fans turned up on Saturday in Stuttgart to see Mika Hakkinen off on his sabbatical year. Mercedes-Benz held an end of season party at its factory and Hakkinen was the star of the show.

Hakkinen says that he will see how things go with his sabbatical before deciding if he wants to return to Formula 1.
