Mika Hakkinen: An F1 life in pictures – Motorsport.com

That was a super-interesting day. Winning a Formula 3 race in England gave me the opportunity to test the Benetton in 1990 on the Silverstone South Circuit. Inside my head I’m the best driver in the world, full of confidence. Everybody’s saying: “Be careful. It’s a Formula 1 car.” I’m thinking: ‘No way I’m careful!’
There’s a long straight with a super-fast right-hander at the end of it. Behind that corner is the paddock they use for the South Circuit. There’s just a barrier between you and the mechanics, who were watching. I did my installation lap and then I was coming down that straight, absolutely flat out; full power, because the car felt very good. I saw the mechanics starting to run away! They thought this crazy guy was going to crash into the paddock!
