F1 Champ Mika Hakkinen Returns to Motorsports to Pilot Mercedes SLS AMG GT3

Former Formula 1 double world champion Mika Häkkinen will return to motor racing, piloting a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 at the 6-hours of Zhuhai on November 13. Representing Customer AMG Sports Team China, Hakkinen will share racing duties with co-drivers, CongFu Cheng and Lance David Arnold.

This is the first time Mika Hakkinen has raced competitively in the last four years, his last one being 2007 DTM season finale at Hockenheim. His return to racing is his way of giving a vote of support, as his superstar appeal and his role as Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador will give the SLS AMG GT3 a huge boost of publicity in its first appearance in China.

Says Mika, "It's a great honor for me to be able to contest the first SLS AMG GT4 race in China. Although I've visited China many times, I've never raced there, which is why I'm really looking forward to Zhuhai. It will be a tough race in a competitive field, but I'll do my best for Customer Sports team AMG. Of course, being a guest driver in such a line-up should be a lot of fun, especially in the SLS AMG GT3. It's a great customer motorsport vehicle which is both fast and extremely good-looking."
