Welcome to your (late) Saturday Heikki News update.

Due to the summer break there has only been one race since my last update, the lovely Spa. Heikki made it into Q2 for the second year there in a row! I was hoping for some rain on Sunday simply because I got rained on so much last year, and also because rain always gives Heikki an excellent chance for a strong finish. Sadly things stayed dry and he came home in 15th.

In the off season Heikki did all the things you’d expect him to do. Running, golfing with the Finnish number one, making friends with reindeer, watching his karting team and chilling out in Finland. Doesn’t that cottage look lovely!

After some plane related drama trying to get to Spa he also stole a plane from Lewis Hamilton. That’s not something everyone in the world can say.

Taking off again, took an aircraft that was going to @LewisHamilton tomorrow morning, sorry mate you gotta take a train... Or a bus!

This weekend he is in Poland, playing golf again.

Busy week training at home, now off to Poland, attending a golf competition at the Sand Valley golf club! Links course, will be difficult...

By the next edition of Heikki news I will have been to Singapore so if everyone can cross their fingers for a good result there I would be very happy! Have a great weekend everyone, see you in the comments.
