Showing some Heikki love

This amuses me...  In his own words, how was Heikki's race and what happened on the pit straight that allowed Alonso to get past again?

"I had a great battle first with Kimi (Raikkonen) and then Fernando (Alonso) which I really enjoyed. I managed to get past Fernando but then as I tore off a visor strip on the main straight I accidentally hit the pit lane speed limiter button and Fernando managed to get past me again."

He was funnier on ITV when they were talking to him...

Heikki: "I managed to pass Fernando and then just accidentally er hit the pit lane speed limiter in the middle of the straight as I was trying to take my tear off away from the visor and..."
Steve Rider: "Yeah we can see that now.  What exactly happened at this point?"
Heikki: "Like I got inside and he tried to give me a bit of a squeeze but I made a move and after that I was pretty well in control but after that I was coming down to the straight then with my right hand I went for the tear off as I it was full of oil and I couldnt see anything and then I just accidentally hit the pit lane speed limiter with my fist.  At first then I thought 'what was going on?' and I had no drive and then Fernando went past again and I thought 'oh dear'."

Ahh gotta love him.... and his invitation to join him in the sauna in Finland... well....  I might add more Heikki quotes later!
