Angry Birds Heikki revs up fans this summer, this fall ... and this winter

Angry Birds Heikki
You wanted more Angry Birds, right? Well, how about a new themed level every few weeks? That's what players will get as the crux of Rovio's partnership with Formula 1 (F1) racer Heikki Kovalainen. Starting today, players will get to go for the gold in special levels of Angry Birds themed around (and released alongside) the rest of the upcoming races in the 2012 F1 season.

For those keeping score, that's 12 levels across the next five months, starting today with the upcoming grand prix race at Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire, England. Then, it's off to Hockenheim, Germany and so forth. With each race comes a new Angry Birds level to master, which incorporates the leader boards popularized by Angry Birds Friends on Facebook.

But replacing the power-ups Facebook bird-flingers have come to love are special Heikki-themed boosts. However, players will have to "Like" the racer's Facebook page to unlock access to the power-up. Considering it's a free bird capped in Heikki's signature helmet, you'll probably want to go do that. And just like that, the almighty Angry Birds power-pimp another property.
