|Champ gives F1 fans an early thrill
|THE unmistakable roar of a Formula One car was heard in Singapore six months early at the Padang yesterday.Two-time world champion Mika Hakkinen thrilled a crowd of over 10,000 as he zipped down St Andrew’s Road at a top speed of almost 200kmh.
The demonstration, part of Johnnie Walker’s responsible drinking campaign, saw the retired Finn execute burnouts and spins in a two-hour performance that had onlookers reaching for their ear-plugs and snapping away with their cameras.
His machine for the day was McLaren’s car from last season – the MP4-22.
