Will he do better than Alonso this season? I hope for another 1999, this time full season :wink:

The length of the contract?

Quote:
26-year-old Heikki, who made his Formula 1 race debut last year with Renault, joins the team on a long-term contract and will commence his on-track programme in early January.


Go beat 'em, Heikki!

Yessssss!!!! !yahoo: !yahoo: I'm so happy for Heikki. !grin! He truly deserves that seat and hopefully he will have a decent chance to fight for wins next year and that he will be allowed to show what he's got (pun intended :roll:: )

At least he will be the one decent thing McLaren will have going for them next year $peace

"As a Finn it's an honour for me to follow in Mika and Kimi's footsteps.". Awww :$
Well, Finns have always done great things at McLaren so here's for another example of that! :T:@

Go Heikki!!! Show them how it's really done! :T:@

I think he choose the best option but lewis will have edge on him $peace

FIA action can't prevent Mclaren from using Ferrari's IP so they will be strong team. :p

Good news.
I've never been a McLaren fan, but Kovy is such a good driver and a nice person.
It would be such a waste not to see him in 2008.

It's a positive move for both of them. Heikki has a seat capable of helping him earn podiums and wins, while McLaren have found a driver who could earn points and help his team mate earn more.

I like Heikki. Good for him on getting the drive... a nice person always talkative. Hope he gets a few wins in next season and gives Lewis a run for his money.

Hope he can get a world title sometime in the future too :)

taking into consideration that he started on the wrong foot, with a number of mistakes in Australia and in the next races, but then, he really pulled up his socks and surprised everyone, and left Fisi trailing him till the end.

he's clearly going to be a number two within the team, despite what McLaren will publicly say
