This made me laugh. It’s Mika Hakkinen and Lewis Hamilton in a viral for Johnnie Walker, each making out that the “Pact” – not to drink and drive – was their idea.
It’s funny because you can see the tells both men use when they are lying – as they clearly both are here.
Mika is not a bad actor. There’s a moment at 40 seconds where he does this grin, which he used to do sometimes when you interviewed him. It’s a kind of involuntary show of emotion.
I remember he did it after that amazing pass on Michael Schumacher at Spa in 2000, where they passed Riccardo Zonta one on each side. In the paddock afterwards I asked him what he thought about Schumacher putting him on the grass and he did that grin.
It’s a bit of fun.
