However, speaking in an interview after the race, he said that “I didn’t want to go into the pit lane with the car like that as it could have hurt a lot of people.”

I looked for the fire marshal on the pit straight and took the car there. There was a bit of damage but no-one got hurt and that is the man thing.”

Heikki is currently 19th in the drivers championship.
