The winners of the Formula 1 they usually have a large bank account available for their life. Motor sport is usually a very expensive activity, and to practice it you have to have a bulging wallet. However, there are several cases in which athletes usually have problems with the law for non-payments to the treasury.
Emerson Fittipaldi it was news in the last hours, since it was known that it is very complicated due to lack of payments to several creditors in its native Brazil. The two-time Formula 1 champion has many open cases in his country and owes a large amount of money, which complicates his legal situation.
It was known that Fittipaldi has 145 criminal cases in process, due to financial problems against him. In addition, it is estimated that the money that must be paid as payment to creditors owed to them is between 8 and 9 million euros. However, his lawyer denies this sum.
“It is in the pit and does not even have 2,000 euros to meet the costs of the process.” However, from the accusatory side they say that in reality, Fittipaldi leads “the life of a millionaire.” “It has all its assets in Miami and is making use of various companies, so it is very difficult to seize it,” they said.
It is not the first time that Fittipaldi has had financial problems. Previously he wanted to enter the top flight, with his own equipment, but the costs were hellish, so his dream was vanished. Also, in 1993, he started an orange juice factory, which did not work. That year, he won the Indianapolis 500 and at the time of receiving the traditional milk, he exchanged it for juice. This earned him the disapproval of the entire Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
