Mika Hakkinen followed briefly by Kimi.

Mika had the entire package. He was fast, smart, agressive, calculated and an amazing guy off the track.
I'm quit possitive Kimi would beat Mika in a head to head fight, but Kimi just doesn't have the same flair and presence like Mika had/has.

And Mika was the reason why I fell in love with F1 :)

Well I guess it might be to indicate "son of" condition as may be the same case with other countries for example in Sweden, they use "-son" affix for this purpose as far as I know: "Andersson = The son of Anders"

The son of Raikko.
The son of Hakki.
The son of Kovalain.

Or I am a big liar :nosweat:


I think you are right. The same goes for Denmark with "-sen" wich derrives from "søn" meaning son. My last name is Møller-Madsen, wich means that many many years ago a guy named Mads had a son and his last name woul thus be Madsen. Since then it just sticked to his children and they would also have that last name. (Møller means Miller, as in a person who works at a mill)

One of my friends is half finnish, he might be able to confirm it as i am not sure it it goes the same for Finland in terms of the "-nen". I think it does but i am not sure.

btw, although very rare, some people have last names as Valdemardatter wich translates to daughter of Valdemar. So it not only boys who would have their own last names.

I hope it helped :)

I'm not really sure myself either. I've never heard about that "son of" explanation so I don't know if it applies to Finnish names. There are many Finnish surnames which are real words meaning something and then there's sometimes just -nen added to them. What I think is that the -nen suffix softens the name so it fluids better and it's easier to say it.

Gotta say Mika after the crash he had in Adelaide 95 and he came back and won 2 world titles after nobody gave him a chance. His races with Schumacher were brilliant

Fa sho Mika
he stayed away from the media never got drunk till he could not sh** anymore
a well predictable force in the game during his time

I like Kimi but really I feel he has not really proven much to be on that level as mika
last year's championship fell right in his lap

when he dominate a full season I will reconsider

I think Hakkinen. So, so quick, and I think a bit more clued up than Kimi.
