Former Argentine F1 Driver Carlos Reutemann Says Bringing Sport To Argentina Will Be Costly
Argentine former F1 driver Carlos Reutemann said that bringing an F1 event to Argentina "would require extraordinary economic solvency," according to OLE. Buenos Aires Head of City Government Mauricio Macri has "launched an ambitious project: bringing F1 to Argentina for 2017." F1's last visit to Argentina occurred in '98. Reutemann: "Bringing F1 depends on the economy and the financing. From what I have read and heard from F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone, we would need $40 million per year for five years" (OLE, 10/24).
