Porto gets a surprise visit from Carlos Reutemann

Sebastián Porto had a happy ending to his holidays in Argentina when the governor of his local province of Santa Fe, ex-Formula 1 star Carlos Reutemann, dropped in for a surprise visit. Reuteman has followed Porto's career closely, watching every race on television, and was keen to discuss the championship in detail. Porto also discussed his own plans for the future, including his hopes to step up to the MotoGP category in the next couple of seasons.

The pair also chatted extensively about Formula 1 and the success of their fellow South American Juan Pablo Montoya, before Reutemann eventually headed home with a very special gift under his arm. Porto had given him one of his uniquely designed Shoei helmets, which features the caricature of his mascot, a boxer dog, on the back.
