Sebastián Porto visits Carlos Reutemann after winning in Rio

After his historic debut win in Rio de Janeiro, Sebastián Porto was invited to visit former Fórmula 1 star Carlos Reutemann, who now works as governor for the Santa Fé region, birthplace of the 23 year old racer. Reutemann wished to personally congratulate Porto on the example he is setting for a country in economic crisis, whilst the young Argentinean was touched by the sporting and political compliment.

Reutemann was one of the first people to contact Porto after his maiden victory, and left the following message on his answer machine: ´Sebas, I am watching you on the television and can see you celebrating with your Argentinean friends on the track. Enjoy this moment because I know how it feels to win for the first time. Congratulations.´
