Finnish Victory in Russia

The Finnish Formula 1 driver Valteri Bottas won his first victory in a Grand Prix today. This was his fourth race in Mercedes. On third place was Finnish driver Kimi Räikkönen, driving for Ferrari.

I wish there would be Swedish drivers who were at least nearly as successful as the Finnish drivers. Still, it was nice to see the flag of Finland on top and to hear the anthem of Finland. This is especially nice when the race was in Russia, the country Finland won its sovereignty from a hundred years ago, and the country that tried to reclaim Finland in wars of aggression in 1939-40 and 1941-5.

We hope Valteri Bottas will win more races, and that Kimi Räikkönen will also win races this year.
