Welcome to the ninth edition of Heikki News!

Since you were last updated we’ve had another two races and Heikki outqualified Jarno in both. This makes their qualy head to head 4-0 for the year. Excellent work Heikki! He finished 16th in China, which was ahead of a Sauber and a Williams! Unfortunately hydraulics issues meant he finished Turkey in 19th, but this was still ahead of both HRTs and the only Virgin that started the race.

Lotus seem to be a lot closer to the existing teams this year and I’m hoping the upgrade they’re bringing to Spain will help even further. Heikki is hoping so too. I’ve literally put my money (at 17:1 odds) behind him scoring a point this year, but perhaps I should be focusing in the short term on getting into Q2 instead. I remember that glorious day in Spa last year when it happened, it felt more Christmas than Christmas! That’s kind of a lie because I remember it happening but I couldn’t for the life of me remember which race it was and had to look it up just now. That’s pretty terrible considering I was at that race but clearly even being there is not enough to overcome the F1 sieve that is my mind. I’ve just been told it happened in Malaysia too. Worst. Memory. Ever.

Heikki has also relaunched his website with a new look. There’s some new items in his web store, so feel free to buy a hat for me, or for yourself if you prefer. He has a new logo for this year too and I’m going to be honest and say I have no idea what it means. Maybe it doesn’t mean anything? His website also has fantastic posts from Heikki himself mixed in amongst the press release type ones. I don’t check it as often as I should because I’m pretty bad at reading things unless someone tweets a link to it!

Off track Heikki has been doing some really excellent things. Along with all the drivers and team principals he has contributed to the You Are Connected charity app which is raising funds for Japan. If you have an Apple gadget I recommend you get it – it’s cheap, for a great cause, has wonderful photos, and I can confirm it looks fabulous on my iPad! Heikki’s message is one of the longer ones, it’s very sweet. It doesn’t stop there though, Heikki is also the first champion to join the World Health Organisation’s latest campaign for safer hospitals in South East Asia. This region gets more than its fair share of natural disasters and in these times of trouble their hospitals are often unable to provide the services the people desperately need. As part of the campaign WHO want 100,000 people to test their reaction times against Heikki’s before next week’s World Health Assembly. As I write 70,264 have tried and lots of people have beaten his time but I am definitely not one of them. My average reaction time was 0.405 seconds. Can you do better? Give it a go here.

There has been some fun off track too, not wanting to let him win two days in a row he beat Lewis at a game of golf in China, they played a whopping 27 holes! He then went to Finland to spend some time with his karting team. I love seeing drivers get involved in different levels of motorsport, it’s nice they remember where they started. Another F1 Podcast headed down to Duxford and watched him drive a Caterham recklessly on a piece of concrete which is a video worth watching. Heikki also dragged his rowing machine into his backyard to get in a workout in what looks like lovely surroundings. Catherine may not have been home at the time but she still made sure he was being careful! Closer to home Heikki has been propelled back to the top of Christine’s Rankings, where he belongs, by answering heaps of fans questions on his twitter page so if theres ever anything you've wanted to know, tweet him and you might just get a reply.

He’s been proudly supporting Finland in ice hockey and GP3 recently so I wonder if Heikki will be watching Eurovision tonight? I’ll be getting up at 5am to join in the live comments here and, due to my lack of being European and actually having my own nation to get behind I’ll be supporting Finland instead. Make sure you join us if you’re watching and let us know who you want to win because it’s scientifically proven that the Sidepodcast comments make any event even better! Even if you won’t be joining us, have a great Saturday and I’ll be back in four weeks with another instalment of Heikki News.

    I think... And don't quote me on this... That the idea with a travel system is that you kind of have the bit on the top that the baby goes in and that kind of snaps into the bottom where the wheels are and then you get given a spare snappy thing that you can put in your car so you can move the bit from where the baby goes from the wheels to the car and back with quick release like you're doing a pit stop.

    Yes they do... And yes they do... But none of them live very close so it seems a bit crazy to buy a whole system thing when it won't be used very much... And so we need to think of the power to weight ratio for getting quickly on and off of busses.

    Some have a one button collapsable system, which sounds overkill but of course you need to be able to do that if you are on a bus and you need to collapse it because your other hand is presumably holding the baby...

    I think I'm going to need to hire Adrian Newey and Ross Brawn.

  • Pat W14/05/2011 at 09:54

    Morning.

    Wow, what's in it?

    bacon and egg! That cross section drastically under represents the amount of bacon in it.

    The best part is I still have another 7 pieces to eat :D

    Wow. That looks both awesome and also a bit sickly. I want one.

    I see that the videos and things have been on youtube for weeks and the songs have been available for purchase for just as long, has it always been like that? I would've thought the best way would be to keep it all hush hush quiet so you get the maximum BOOOM SURPRISE THIS SONG IS AWFUL effect on the actual night.

    The semi final stuff is only a few years old but I think people have ended up selling stuff off and presenting songs and whatnot for weeks before it for ages now, or as far as I know anyways. Dodgy Eurovision music is all about the one night, damnit :)

    Morning. Great Daily Amy!

    So Eurovision starts on TV at 8pm UK time?

  • Alianora La Canta14/05/2011 at 13:15

    i truly don't understand what this means?

    ...expelling air from the input device proximate the key when user selection is imminent

    It means the keys can move more when pressed because the keys can go more or less flush to the case instead of the air getting in the way and limiting it to about halfway as is the case with current keyboards.

    Means Apple can do flatter keyboards, meaning their devices will be thinner and lighter, and still have good ergonomics.

    I've had mine 6 weeks and still do that. I heart magnets.

  • Mr C14/05/2011 at 16:09

    I wonder if eurovision video works on the iPad. Would make my life lots easier

    I wouldn't be on it. They're usually behind the time in technology (and music, fashion, taste.... and that's why it's so great to watch). Is SBS showing it in Australia?

    Oh yeah - Just did the maths - I forget about *that* country ;) I used to have EV parties and got annoyed at anyone that didn't avoid the news all day Sunday. Are you pulling an all nighter and will you stick around for the voting part, which seems to be the slowest part of the show)

    Just noticed the web player says you have to have installed the Octoshape plugin. The only time I've seen that before is the CNN website for conventional (not ipads etc) computers but the video still worked anyway. But it was built around flash. so did this help? probably not.

    Do the other videos on the website work or use flash? that'll give clues.

    all nighter then off to Lindt for lunch, then a run. Hope to get to bed at normal person hours tomorrow night :)

    ah good point. Shall hook up my other laptop to the tv instead for fullscreen goodness

    isn't Lindt a chocolate brand and if so, are you having chocolate for lunch? Kudos for you for staying awake - I would have taken the easy way out and just got up at 4am or whatever. Sometimes it's good to be in that region for international events, although i've never been able to get used to F1 at times other than 10 or 11pm.

  • Pat W14/05/2011 at 16:43

    I get "I/O error" when I insert a photo, should I be linking to it instead?

  • Mr C14/05/2011 at 16:44

    ahh yeah, i gotta fix that. could you upload to your blog and put that address in for the time being?

    I don't normally get to bed before 4 so this is easier. Lindt has a cafe in town, I may get waffles but I'll see what else is on the menu. I hate races in the daytime, or past 2am. 10pm is perfect, much nicer than midnight in nz :)

    And here I was thinking I was the only one! For me, I got into F1 with it being the end of the week, late at night when I was just chilling out as opposed to basing a day around it.

    no probs, it'll kill time before eurovision.

    Not really sure but it was something between Harvick and Kyle Busch, war of words sort of thing.

    I'm in that rubbishy place of having drunk some but not enough for it to hit me so I'm kiiiiind of coming back down quickly.

    Nothing in the house, nevermind. Am thinking sleep may be the best alternative solution

    I've had 3/4 of a bottle of a very nice 7 year aged Spanish Tempranillo (my favourite red wine). I can drink that all night but at some point a switch flicks.
