DTM Mugello: Hakkinen wins from 15th

Mika Hakkinen took his second DTM victory of the year – but this time there’ll be no question of him being given half-points as he was at the Lausitzring.

Sebastian Vettel: better than Hamilton?

I’ve been scolding myself for days for not making a bigger fuss over Sebastian Vettel’s Grand Prix debut. So here it is, almost three weeks late. Vettel is hot stuff.
