Reutemann quiet as rivals commit political suicide
Being an Argentine politician at the moment is a dangerous business.
Economists say that Argentina is going to have suffer more before it can begin to emerge from the current problems and the wisest politicians are those keeping a low profile at the moment. Duhalde has said that he will not run for President at the next election, in an effort to create some unity amongst politicians. One of the biggest problems facing the country's politicians is that they are not trusted by the populace, because of continuous allegations of corruption on both sides.
Former Ferrari and Williams driver Carlos Reutemann has avoided such allegations and may be well-placed to step into a leading role in the future.
