May you have the success you truly deserve in 2019!

Juoppo 😂😉

LOL Valterri, but the pic on the right is not 2019 (and may not be) ;) Just kidding. Go beat Lewis this year :)

"Valtteri, this is Toto"

No longer has a drinking problem. Can't wait to see you in Melbourne VB77!

Roolimalli vailla vertaa! Tsemppiä kauteen ja tavoitteisiin! ❤
