Mika Hakkinen I was ready to return, but did not

Two-time Formula 1 world champion Mika Hakkinen said that in late 2001 he took a leave of absence but never returned to the sport.Finn tested the McLaren at the end of 2006, but in a recent interview with Unibet said that he was ready to return, but decided not to.Mika Hakkinen "It was close. I retired in 2001, and everything was fine. But after a few years I had a certain feeling. I felt mentally and physically ready to return to Formula 1.I practiced a lot. I flew to England to work in the simulator McLaren. I've spent a lot of days. It was probably 2004 or 2005. I was fully prepared to return to Formula-1. And as two-time champion I knew how to be ready for it, I would have been better than ever. I was negotiating with Williams, but it didn't work. This was largely because the negotiations were up and down. I didn't like it.Finns are very black and white. If you do something, you will do it. You go straight to the point. And while I understand that this is a complex case, but they couldn't get a better pilot than the double world champion.There were other problems. And it was not about a crazy amount of money, which could not be considered. There were other problems that influenced the decision.I tested the McLaren, drove the car all day, dashed in many circles after all these years, and all went well. We all analyzed. I knew about the problem with a computer that constantly blocked the wheels. We couldn't do anything about it. We are unable to fix it because we didn't have new items.This Is Formula 1. This is a permanent solution to the problems, it's constant suffering. I wanted to get back to thisI had a reason. If I return, I will again work with the same issues. Fortunately, the tests went smoothly.I got into Formula 1 in 1991. It took me seven years to win the race. The same thing could happen on the return. I'm not going to waste seven years. After winning two Championships I can be satisfied with their achievements".
