Hakkinen to commentate USGP

Retired world champion Mika Hakkinen will be working at the US Gran Prix, not behind the wheel of a McLaren but behind a microphone. The ex-McLaren driver will act as a commentator for Canal Digital, the digital channel that broadcasts F1 in his native Finland, analyzing the race and giving the drivers' point of view.

"I believe that as a former F1 professional I can offer Canal Digital's viewers a great deal of small but significant details, especially from the drivers' point of view," said Hakkinen.
