McLaren doctor Aki Hintsa is stepping away from Formula 1.

The broadcaster MTV3 reports that the Finn will from now on concentrate on running his clinic in Geneva.

“Travelling is proving to be a pretty big obstacle,” Hintsa is quoted. “Now, there are younger and better doctors, and I will focus on a different mission – life,” he laughed.

However, Hintsa said he will not break off all contact with Formula 1.

“Drivers will certainly see me in my clinic in the same way as before,” he said. (GMM)
