Heikki has now left Formula 1 and is in Japanese Super GT in 2018. Was with Caterham as a racer, and latterly, a test driver, after driving spells with McLaren and Renault, which included one win (whilst at McLaren). However, he did also make a two race appearance return to cover for the injured Raikkonen at Lotus in 2013. It didn't go that spectacularly and left him without a race drive until his move to the Far East.
