In March, we reported that Formula One driver Heikki Kovalainen had struck a deal with Finnish developer Rovio. The deal resulted in the former donning an Angry Birds helmet during this year's season-opening Australian Grand Prix.
Now, it looks like Rovio will release a line of co-branded merchandise this spring, along with an all-new web game at some point in the summer.
This new title will feature a bunch of "fun Angry Birds game levels" with a racing theme, as well as "bespoke content".
"We're so excited to be working with Heikki on this, the first partnership of its kind in F1," Harri Koponen, Rovio's EVP of consumer products, said. "The helmet looks amazing, and we think people are really going to enjoy the webgame and merchandise."
