Kalle Viippo, spoke to Chris Davies earlier today and told him:
Yes, it’s all confirmed that I will race in F1H2O this year!
This is what I have always dreamed about doing.
Now through hard work I will have the opportunity to fulfil those dreams.
Viippo will be making further announcements about his forthcoming racing season at a News Conference taking place later this week.
When asked about the young Finnish driver’s step up the ladder from the UIM F2 World Championship, he said that he was really looking forward to lining up alongside his fellow countryman Sami Selio and Filip Roms, although he might have to wait a little while longer.
I haven’t been able to test with an F1 engine yet as the lakes around here are still frozen.
