Rubén Vázquez has learned he is the son of the five-time Formula 1 World Champion, following a legally-mandated DNA test.

Last August, the body of F1 legend Juan Manuel Fangio was exhumed by court order to test his DNA and determine the validity of two men's paternity claims, the men being Oscar Espinoza and Ruben Vazquez.

Espinoza, 77, was confirmed as Fangio's son in December 2015 and now Vazquez's case has reached the same conclusion.

Vazquez, 73, always claimed that his late mother Catalina Basili confessed in 2005 that he was Fangio’s son, the result of a relationship she had with the driver in the 1940s.

Fangio was never married nor had any other recognized children in his lifetime – although he had a lengthy relationship with Andrea Berruet, Espinoza’s mother.

The Argentinean driver, who won the F1 title in 1951 and ’54 through ’57, died on July 17th 1995, aged 84.
