Mar.19 (GMM) Heikki Kovalainen has been clocking up plenty of miles in the short lull between the Bahrain and Australian grands prix.
While Mark Webber headed straight from the Sakhir season opener to Melbourne, Lotus driver Kovalainen returned home to Switzerland.
He then flew to his native Finland for a day to announce a new personal sponsor, and on the way home stopped in Geneva to watch an ice-hockey game.
28-year-old Kovalainen’s next move is the long haul to Australia.
“I’ve done it for many years and had the same routine on the other side,” he is quoted as saying by Turun Sanomat. “I’ve never had any major problems with it,” he added, referring to jetlag.
And he wrote on Twitter early on Friday morning: “Up early again, trying to adapt to Aussie time already. Normal procedure for me, helps a lot adapting to their time.”
