Momentum : Sebastian Vettel Formula One - Episode 17
Tommi and Sebastian during their first year at Red Bull Racing! :) :) :)
Thanks to @VettelNews_jp for letting me know that it was uploaded on youtube :D
Much kisses and hugs!
The 2012 F1 season will officially start in a few hours with new drivers, new pit crew, team staff, and trainers.
I just wanted to give a little shoutout to Tommi and say that many will miss seeing him around in 2012 but we all hope he will be very happy at his new job :’)
Good luck to Seb and Heikki :D
Now, let’s get racing!
I think Team Oriflame is the right path, because the primary task is to develop young athletes as responsible young adults. I strongly believe that an intelligent human being = an intelligent athlete.
I think Tommi is not just a good trainer. He is also a very good person, with a very pure heart, like Seb said.

That intense stare…
We all want Tommi to be very happy with his new job and we know that we will always stay in touch. No matter what, he will always remain a part of our family.

It’s been a while since we heard about Tommi so I am very excited to finally read a new interview about him from this online article
As usual it’s in Finnish and the Google English translation is very bad so I won’t make your eyes bleed by pasting it here. However, here below are some excerpts that I really like and I would like to share with you!
Disclaimer: All mistakes are my own so if the translation is incorrect, please let me know and I will be very happy to change it :)
"Moving to Switzerland and the World of Formula One brought major changes to Pärmäkoski’s life.
- You live in Switzerland and train 80-90 days a year. For example in 2009 I spent 250 days in hotels around the world. In had only 20-30 days vacation in Finland. It is some sort of sacrifice. I gave a lot but received a lot. Yes social life was pretty hard.”
"Pärmäkoski was responsible for Sebastian’s physical and mental training, his nutrition and massage.
- It is funny that many people do not even consider this a sport even though the truth is quite the opposite. Yes, Formula One drivers live as any top athlete. They train twice a day and have to eat specific meals for optimum results. They never rest. Then when you add all the pressure and media attention, it’s quite a complete package that you have to be able to manage.”
Let me know if you have a better translation! I would appreciate a lot! Thank you!
