Hakkinen lands first DTM victory
Former F1 world champion Mika Hakkinen
Hakkinen won the F1 World Championship twice in the 90's
Mika Hakkinen won his first German Touring Car Championship (DTM) race in round three at Spa-Francorchamps.

The Finn began the race from pole in his Mercedes and finished 4.2 seconds ahead of reigning DTM champion Mattias Ekstrom in an Audi.

Tom Kristensen finished third while Gary Paffett was the top Briton in eighth despite clashing with Pierre Kaffer and serving a stop-go penalty.

Paffett still leads the championship by two points from team-mate Hakkinen.

"The team deserves all of the credit - the Mercedes is a fantastic car and we had great tactics," said former Formula One world champion Hakkinen.

"We are all motivated and focused. I'm very, very happy."
