Heikki's a patient man, and he better be

McLaren’s Heikki Kovalainen believes it is only a matter of time before he will be on the top step of the podium.

The Finn has had tough luck much of this season, but it is obvious the speed is there, and Fox Sports reports he is pleased enough with his performance.

“I just need to find my own way. It will happen sooner or later,” Kovalainen is quoted as saying. “The fact is I've already been in a position to win a few times, and there will be opportunities again. I just need to crack those opportunities when they come, take them better than I have done so far, to make sure I don't waste them.”

They say patience is a virtue, and it is certainly an attribute that is necessary if you are not on the chosen side of the McLaren garage.

“At this point of the season I was planning to have more points, but many things have happened, some technical issues, accidents,” he continued. “So the most important thing is to keep focused, to keep working, to drag ourselves into a position to win.”

That becomes all the more difficult when you have to make room for your teammate.

“I'm still pushing to the maximum to score more points than the others, and you never know. Anything can happen in Formula One.” he said. “So there's no point giving up or feeling sorry for myself. I will keep fighting.”
