Two of my favorite things in the world: the iPhone, and Formula 1 racing. When I read this story over at SlashGear, I couldn’t help but be excited. Heikki Kovalainen, Finnish driver for Caterham F1 Team will done a red Angry Bird helmet for the upcoming season.
(If you’re not familiar with Formula 1, think Indy Car with more corners and health and safety rules.) This helmet deal will be fantastic press for Rovio, with F1 being one of the richest sports in the world. “+1″ for some really clever marketing.
The new Grand Prix year is set to start this weekend in Australia, and for the first time I’ll be able to get my daughter excited about racing cars.
As Kovalainen’s car speeds along a 100mph+ I’ll be showing her how one driver has Angry Birds on his protective head gear, and trying to ignore the fact that it really clashes with the team’s green and yellow livery. Let’s just hope his bosses remind him he doesn’t get bonus points for smashing up tyre walls.
