Montoya gets a gift
JUAN PABLO MONTOYA's trip to Brazil promoting the BMW Williams fuel supplier Petrobras brought about a meeting with Sid Mosca, a regular face in the Brazilian racing community.
During a break in filming an advertisement at Interlagos, Montoya was approached by Mosca who presented him with an authentic Ayrton Senna helmet worn during the 1988 season after Mosca heard that the Colombian was a fan of the late triple champion.
"It is a very special gift. Ayrton Senna is my idol and it was a big surprise to receive a replica of his helmet," said Montoya afterwards.
