Finnish F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen to wear Angry Birds helmet at races
After quickly turning into a best-selling game franchise, the Angry Birds will now be spotted during Formula 1 races too. Game developer Rovio has tied up with Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen who will wear a shiny new Angry Birds helmet starting from the inaugural race in Melbourne, Australia. Rovio, also hailing from Kovalainen’s home country Finland, is looking to extend its wings from the world of mobile phone gaming. As for Heikki Kovalainen, the Finnish driver is ever excited on this new tie-up and looks forward to partner with more brands that suit his unique tastes in future.
