This image is the one that led to his ‘Flying Finn’ nickname. It shows Mika Hakkinen flying through the air in Adelaide in his McLaren MP4/8. Mark Sutton, who took the picture, recalls this special moment “I was standing at Brewery Bend corner when I saw Mika’s car coming towards me over the curb, so I just kept firing my shutter. It took only five frames, one where Mika is hitting the curb, one where he is in the air and then where he’s going back down and he returned to the pits. Luckily I was the only photographer to capture the special moment”.
The 40 x 60 cm image is printed directly on acrylic glass and has a hidden lightweight aluminum hanging system. It comes personally signed and numbered by Mika Häkkinen. Add this great conversation piece to your collection, before they sell out.
