Comment from Mika Hakkinen
I visited Suzuka Circuit for the first time in 16 years in March 2017 and was able to meet enthusiastic fans in Japan again.
Last year, I drove MP 4/13 and enjoyed Suzuka's unique track layout.
And this year, I decided to return to racing since my last race for the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, which was held at the Zhuhai (Zhuhai International Circuit) in November 2011, and I chose Suzuka Circuit for the place of my comeback.
Suzuka is also the place for me to win the F1 championship for the first time and the place where there are many enthusiastic Japanese friends.
I am very grateful to Katsu-san and Mobilityland for making this wonderful project possible.
And I hope to see Japanese fans again in August.
