The all important Finnish

The last time a driver won the world championship with a number six on his car was x x years ago and it was Keke Rosberg. And this season the championship was won by A Finn, another Finn in Mika Hakkinen retired, and finally Heikki Kovalainen holds one of the keys to the driver market.

My favourite thing from the end of the season is to learn that not only do Kimi and Heikki get on but so do their fathers. Both of them race in the Legends series and are very good friends. They even watch most of the races together. They were sitting next to each other as their sons raced each other for the same piece of tarmac back in Japan. And in that case Heikki bested Kimi. It must have been an interesting moment.
