Finnish video game developer Rovio, creators of the best selling application Angry Birds, have released a Formula One version of their game called “Angry Birds Heikki”, dedicated to Caterham F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen.

The on-line format of the app allows players to enjoy the game set in the backdrop of 12 World famous Grand Prix circuits. Starting with Silverstone as Level One, a new level is unlocked at set dates for each of the forthcoming races until the end of the season.

Angry Birds has been prominent in Formula One this year with Kovalainen sporting a themed crash helmet and the Lotus F1 Team using an Angry Birds livery for the Monaco Grand Prix, dedicated to fellow Finn, Kimi Raikkonen.


The game has a twist on the original format. Players can access a code through Kovalainen’s official Facebook fan page which allows you to gain “Heikki Power” and use Kovalainen’s crash helmet as an extra Angry Bird.

The game can be found at heikki.angrybirds.com.

    The target might have to be a Torro Rosso :-)

  2. Jamie Cottage says:

    What a combo…

  3. Wayne says:

    It has to be about time that Heikki had another shot in a top team doesn’t it? James, nay idea why his name is never mentioned as the ‘number 2′ driver for the likes of Ferrari, RBR or Mercedes etc? If I ran a team I’d want him for sure. He did’t do great in his time with McLAren but no worse that JB is doing this year. What more could he do than what he has done over the past couple of years….

  4. Stuart burton says:

    James, will you be in the commentary box in silverstone? You seem to have vanished!!

    1. James Allen says:

      Yes I’ll be there

  5. ben S says:

    Love the idea. Maybe there could be a Venezuelan version, Angry Maldonados… crashing about the place.

    1. means says:

      Double points if you punt him into an englishman?

    2. Hare says:

      Kobi-bashi

    3. sname says:

      haa! the only problem is that it would be to easy.. angry maldonados would love to crash..

    4. Rafael L says:

      hahaha

      1. Lawrence says:

        Haha, that’d be great. You could select the helmet of any driver and use it as an Angry Bird and choose the pigs to be any driver you wanted. FM v LH, LH v PM, MS v all participants in F1 races since 1991.

    5. Jim Dee says:

      James it is for comments like this that we need a like button so that comments can be organized and filtered.

  6. Lawrence says:

    HK has a good sense of humour to allow that. Love it.

  7. Guy says:

    Well that certainly is a way ofv engaging kids with F1.

    Mine are hooked!

  8. CaterhamElise says:

    Looks cool. Will definitely be checking it out.

  9. vvipkho says:

    Heikki also playing himself..

  10. SteveSenna says:

    There was a Keke Rosberg homage level on the original Angry Birds. Level 7-11 I think, had an F1 car with wooden blocks, sitting on a ’1982′ stand with, best of all, a big moustached pig to hit in the cockpit!

    pistol is hte code
