Though Nick got a gig testing Pirelli tires for F1, his future as a racer in F1 is still iffy. My favorite diecast carmaker, Minichamps, neglected to make a model of him this season. But I've got to get my Heidfeld Minichamps fix so I fudged my rules a little and expanded my collection.
I first started by collecting his Sauber BMW cars. I then upped the ante by acquiring his 1999 McLaren and 2005 Williams.
So now what? Well. He is, after all, testing the Pirelli tires with the 2009 Toyota TF109. So I got this:
Then, I figured: He was the reserve/test driver for Mercedes GP this year. So I am bidding on this:
Yes, I know that is Nico Rosberg in the car. But I have been rooting for Nico all season. And no, I am not going to paint his helmet black.
And there you have it, the complete Nick Heidfeld F1 Minichamps collection.*
*Less his cars from Jordan, Prost, etc.
