Book Description

January 2004 Formula 1 Legends Series
Until last year, Juan-Manuel Fangio was the sole owner of the world titles record (now equalled by Michael Schumacher), and his unique style is much admired by Michael Schumacher himself, who admits that drivers of the past were in another world. Fangio is almost a common word for quick drivers. Alain Prost's wife, one day, found her husband driving too quickly on a road. "Who do you think you are?", she asked, "Fangio"? This book describes Juan-Manuel Fangio's youth in Buenos Aires, his first steps in motor racing in Argentina, then his move to Europe where he scooped all Formula One honours. This biography also comes up with comprehensive results. The book features several hundred photographs and car drawings.
