Mika Häkki­nen vs Michael Schu­macher

F1 Racing (UK) - - COVER STORY -

Be­tween 1998 and 2000, this pair shared 34 of 49 GP vic­to­ries – 17 apiece for Mclaren and Fer­rari. It’s al­ways said that Schu­macher feared Häkki­nen more than any rival, and on pure one-lap pace the Finn prob­a­bly had the edge. Twenty-five poles to Schu­macher’s 15 over that same pe­riod sug­gests as much (although Schu­macher missed six races in ’99 with a bro­ken leg). Mika took back-to-back ti­tles in ’98 and ’99, be­fore Schu­macher ended Fer­rari’s 21-year driv­ers’ ti­tle drought in 2000.
