Hannu Kuutti, this month's guest blogger, reckons his countrymen are pound-for-pound the greatest...
The cliché about Finnish people being good drivers seems to be true.
Look at the statistics. As a country of a mere 5.5 million people, we have produced many drivers who have won world class races and several world championship titles.
Many much larger countries, which are also known for loving their motorsport, haven’t been able to keep up with Finland in the championship league tables. The Italians, for example, haven’t claimed a native F1 champion since Alberto Ascari’s triumph of 1953 – and Schumacher and Vettel are the only Germans ever to win the biggest prize in motorsport.
But for Finnish people the biggest delight comes of course from the fact that we have more titles in racing than Sweden!
