McLaren doctor Aki Hintsa leaving F1

McLaren doctor Aki Hintsa is stepping away from formula one.

The broadcaster MTV3 reports that the Finn will from now on concentrate on running his clinic in Geneva.

"Travelling is proving to be a pretty big obstacle," Hintsa is quoted as saying. "Now, there are younger and better doctors, and I will focus on a different mission -- life," he laughed.

However, Hintsa said he will not break off all contact with F1.

"Drivers will certainly see me in my clinic in the same way as before," he said.
