The Macau F3 GP takes place this weekend so here’s a great flashback to the 1990 event when Michael Schumacher and Mika Hakkinen crashed whilst fighting for the lead. Neither driver accepted full responsibility and the incident planted a seed that grew into a legendary F1 rivalry. One story claims Schumacher spoke to Hakkinen quite nicely after the Macau race but was later very critical of Mika in the press. Hakkinen didn’t appreciate Michael’s approach to the media so when the two drivers clashed again at Spa Francorchamps in 2000 he did the complete opposite (lecturing Michael in private but remaining calm and friendly for reporters).
