Alfa Romeo told a touching story about a young fan who three years ago sent a letter to Frederic Vasseur, the head of the Swiss team, containing his children's drawings and 19 euros.
In the letter, a boy named Goto apologized that he could not help the team with a more serious amount, but it was all his savings. At the same time, he did not indicate his last name or return address – there was not even an email address.
But the team decided to find Goto by all means and appealed to fans from different countries with a request to share information – suddenly, someone knows this boy.
And now the team has told about the happy ending of the story: together they managed to establish that Goto lives in Japan, find him, and during the race weekend, a young Japanese fan of Alfa Romeo was a personal guest of Frederic Vasseur
Of course, he visited the team's boxes, on its bridge, received an Alfa Romeo uniform as a gift and even sat in the cockpit of the car. Moreover, during the last weekend at C42, his initials appeared among the names of the sponsors of the team, even if not in the most prominent place and not in the largest font.
As the team reported: "Goto rightfully got his well-deserved place."
In general, this is a story from the category of those that would be worth inventing if it did not actually happen.
