Rumours are gaining ground that two-time World Champion Mika Hakkinen could soon become Lewis Hamilton’s new manager!

Mika Hakkinen As we reported last week, Lewis Hamilton has been actively pursuing offers from potential managers in the wake of his personal professional split with his father, Anthony.

Hakkinen hinted last week that he was pondering a return to the F1 paddock, as a driver manager.

Italy’s Tuttosport is now reporting that a deal could soon be reached that would see the 1998-1999 World Champion assume control for Hamilton’s affairs, which are currently handled by McLaren.

McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh has called for Lewis to appoint a “dispassionate, independent” manager.

I don’t think you could get much more dispassionate than Mika!
