Via a Press Release from Castroneves Racing:
CASTRONEVES FEATURED IN PEOPLE MAGAZINE'S "SEXIEST MAN ALIVE ISSUE"And now I will shamelessly link to Helio's profile in People Magazine, which Dan Wheldon has no doubt already read while seething with jealousy.
Two-time Indianapolis 500 Winner Helio Castroneves is featured in People Magazine's Annual "Sexiest Man Alive" issue available at newsstands now. Joining the ranks of other celebrities including Matt Damon, Patrick Dempsey and Brad Pitt; Castroneves is touted as the "Sexiest Speed Demon" and is making his second appearance in this special issue.
"It's such an honor to be a part of the 'Sexiest Man Alive' issue," said Castroneves. "I can't tell you what a compliment it is to be thought of as sexy. I understand that my role on 'Dancing with the Stars' has gotten me noticed by an entirely new audience, but it's also nice to know that going 200 mph for a living is also considered a glamorous job. It's fun to be recognized not only for my career racing cars, but also my moves on the dance floor!"
The 32 year-old Brazilian is no stranger to gracing the pages of this illustrious issue. In 2001, he was named "Sexiest Racecar Driver" as he was featured among celebrities such as Pierce Brosnan, John Stamos and Ben Stiller in People Magazine's annual issue dedicated to men.
