Finnish translation:That was great race Mika!
Explanation:
You could say word-for-word: 'Se oli upea kisa Mika!', But in Finnish it means, I think more than in English, that the race itself was great (as was Mika's performance, too).

If you want to say definitely that it was Mika who was great, you can say: 'Se oli hieno/upea/loistava suoritus/ajo, Mika!'
