SHANGHAI - Two-time world champion Mika Hakkinen has advised Lewis Hamilton to keep his cool if he wants to win the title this year.

The advice from the Finn, back-to-back world champion in 1998 and 1999, comes on the eve of the Chinese Grand Prix with the unpredictable McLaren driver holding a five point lead over Ferrari's Felipe Massa.

"It's very exciting, very exciting now with two races to go," Hakkinen, who retired from Formula One in 2001, told www.autosport.com.

"It's a combination of everything, you know. Is it going to be a mechanical failure, or driver mistake, or regulations are a bit flexible, or you now, anything can happen.

"Lewis is definitely ahead, and if he can keep his head cool he should be able to win the championship fine. "But Felipe, he's there, he's knocking the door.
