Hakkinen spins off, Large fish found nearby 

Heinz-Harald Frentzen gets his second win of the year at Monza. 
A turbulent, troubled season continues for reigning Formula 1 champion Mika Hakkinen, who spins off course while leading and hands the Italian Grand Prix victory to Heinz-Harald Frentzen. It is speculated that oil and scales from a large Mediterranean fish found just outside of the first chicane may have caused the silver McLaren to lose traction under braking. Track officials identified the fish as an Amberjack (similar to the one pictured) which are found in large numbers off the southern coast of Sardinia.  
    Hakkinen, visably disturbed by the incident, commented, "The odor was horrific! As soon as I climbed out of the car the stench of rotting fish overpowered me making me nauseous and my eyes were swollen and teary." Hakkinen spent several moments in the bushes due to the sudden illness. 
     The fish was found wrapped in old architectual plans for a state prison designed several years ago by the noted stylist Aldo Vanini, known as the "modern Michaelangelo" by his peers.
