VIDEO: Alfa Romeo track down young fan who sent generous donation

The team embarked on a search effort to find a loyal fan that sent in the donation in 2019.

In 2019 Alfa Romeo team principal Fred Vasseur received an envelope from a young fan containing €19 along with the message: "Sorry I couldn't save more to help the team forward."

The letter was just signed 'Goto' without any last name, address, phone, or email details.

The team embarked on a search to find their generous 'contributor' and at the last race weekend in Japan, they finally found Goto.

Along with showing him around the garage, Goto also got his name as a sticker on the car - much like the other sponsors!
