    Rumours in the German press said Mika Häkkinen has signed a three-year deal with the BAR Honda team. The BAR team though explained to F1Racing.net that David Richards and Mika Häkkinen are only meeting up at a Finish Rally race this weekend and they won't sign any deal.
    "Mika Häkkinen is a guest of David Richards at the Finish rally this weekend. They will both follow the rally races there and he will certainly not race for the BAR team next season. Those news reports are absolutely false," a BAR spokesperson told F1Racing.net.

    how cool would that be :eek:
