Brazilian soccer star to head A1 GP team

Real Madrid soccer star and Brazilian World Cup hero Ronaldo is going to run his own team in the new A1 Grand Prix series, which will kick off in September. The news was announced by Sheikh Maktoum during the latest presentation of the A1 GP franchise in Mexico City.

“I am also very happy to announce on this occasion, that the Brazilian team has been sold to Ronaldo, one of the world's greatest athletes and national hero to the 180 million-strong Brazilian population."

Speaking of his involvement in A1 Grand Prix, Ronaldo said: “Like football, A1 Grand Prix is a team sport. Ultimately, it will be the country who will win the World Cup of Motorsport, not the driver. We've won the football World Cup more times than any other nation – it would be great to win the first ever World Cup of Motorsport to go alongside it."
