Screw the cup--getting your very own Angry Birds game is a way cooler accomplishment. That's what Finnish Formula One race car driver Heikki Kovalainen just scored, thanks to a collaboration with developer Rovio. Titled simply "Angry Birds Heikki," the web-based game is set to launch on June 18 and Kovalainen will don that badass Angry Birds helmet to celebrate.

There isn't much known about what the branded web game will entail, as all that Rovio has done to promote Angry Birds Heikki so far is create a teaser website with sharing links to build hype. However, Kovalainen has a sliver of a detail on his personal site. "The webgame, which will feature fun Angry Birds game levels with a racing theme in addition to other bespoke content, launching later in the summer," the site reads.

Interested players can also pick up Heikki-themed Angry Birds gear on Rovio's web store. This type of deal isn't exactly new for Rovio. The Angry Birds have already invaded the worlds of feature film Rio and Wonderful Pistachios with branded games. But for the developer to latch onto Forumla One of all things is certainly interesting. Maybe it's finally time for Angry Birds Racing?
