For many years the exploits of this legendary racer have echoed down the generations, inviting comparison, controversy and sheer admiration. Juan Manuel Fangio began his racing career at mature age and was one of the oldest drivers in Grand Prix events. Fangio was always clever enough to know where the best cars were, how to get a drive in them and then how to exploit them, having no compunction about leaving a team, even after a successful year or even during a season, if he thought he would have a better chance with a better car. In 1956 Fangio moved to Ferrari, replacing the late Alberto Ascari, to win his fourth title. Enzo Ferrari and Fangio did not have a very warm relationship, despite their shared success. For many years Fangio’s five Driver’s Championships seemed an impossible feat to emulate. Even now many insist that there has never been anyone better.
