So Heikki Kovalainen has a personality after all. Who would have thought of that?

The Lotus F1 driver stars in this hilarious F1 commercial that was made for a local Finland sports channel. Taking a page from those memorable Rocky Balboa training scenes, Kovalainen does his best to prepare for the rigors of the 2010 F1 season, where he – according to the commercial – is going up against four World Champions, by carrying buckets of water, eating questionable food, fishing with his hands, running with horses, and shouting ‘Perkele!’ at the top of his lungs, which apparently is a popular Finnish curse word.

We don’t know how that’s going to help Kovalainen’s cause when he’s on-board his Lotus, other than maybe screaming it to just about every driver who passes him during a race.

Hi Andress,

Can you try it again? It works perfectly fine on our end.

Thanks bro!

Well, although it is kinda exciting that Lotus has found it’s way back to the tracks of F1 racing, I still don’t see it finishing well or in top position this season as there are a lot of great(er) drivers out there. Michael Schumacher has just made his comeback, Massa and Alonso are also kicking it good, and with the last race, I don’t really think that the results for the second race will be any different from it.

Where’s the movie? I think something is wrong with youtube, the movie won’t play.
