Mika Häkkinen will not follow team orders
Mika Häkkinen made it clear that he will not follow team orders when instructed to do so. The Flying Finn made his position clear when asked what he'd do to give way to team-mate David Coulthard in a race: "I would go flat out myself and win it. I have to win. That's what I'm paid for and that's what the team expects me to do. That's what I'm trying to do." Häkkinen is far behind his team-mate in points.
The Double World Champion experienced a difficult season thusfar apart from finishing third on the podium at the Canadian GP.
