This morning Estrella Galicia 0.0 gathered Formula 1 drivers Carlos Sainz and Dnaiil Kvyat at the Corinthians stadium (the Arena Corinthians). Both have had to demonstrate their football skills in the Timao stadium.
Through this action the brand wishes to pay homage to the three-time world champion Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, donating an autographed helmet and shirt to the institute named after him (Institute Ayrton Senna), which will be auctioned to raise funds. This homage is not a coincidence, as Senna was a strong supporter of the Corinthians and, to the date, is still an idol for many young drivers like Sainz and Kvyat.
The goal of the Ayrton Senna Institute is to create opportunities for children and young Brazilians through education, which is in line with Estrella Galicia 0.0’s commitment to training young Formula 1 drivers.
Carlos Sainz stated that “It is an honour to donate this helmet to the prestigious Ayrton Senna Institute and to be able to do so during the week of the Brazilian Grand Prix is certainly very special. I’ve always liked watching Formula 1 videos of historical moments and undoubtedly Ayrton is the best in history”.
