Monaco Grand Prix, Monte Carlo, May 24 1998
When asked by Autosport to choose his 'Race of my life', Mika Hakkinen didn't need to think twice. The two-time world champion's Monaco Grand Prix victory en route to his first title in 1998 still holds a special place in his heart.
As always in Monaco, pole position was vital, with Hakkinen beating McLaren team-mate David Coulthard to top spot on the grid by 0.339 seconds. From there, after fending off a feisty Coulthard at the start, Hakkinen was managing a small lead until the second McLaren's engine failed exiting the tunnel and Coulthard was forced to walk home.
