Two Time Formula One World Champion Mika Häkkinen, as an ambassador for UBS, took Amanda Davies out for a lap of the Principality to discuss his racing highlights around the circuit and give his take on how the Mercedes AMG Petronas Team will approach the racing weekend.

Winner of the race in 1998, Häkkinen talks about how he thought he had thrown away his only chance of victory, clipping the wall at Rascasse with only 5 laps remaining.

Filmed in gap between the Historic Grand Prix event held in Monaco and the F1 weekend, Häkkinen does not offer opinion on the incident between the two Mercedes drivers at the Spanish Grand Prix. Instead he reflects on how the team will have learnt lessons from the 2015 Monaco Grand Prix in which Hamilton reacted to a late safety car period by electing to pit from the lead under the assumption that those around him, including his team mate, would do the same in so doing handing the victory to his team mate Nico Rosberg.

Häkkinen does very well to avoid answering the question on whether or not he thinks Lewis will take his second Monaco victory this weekend.
