Throwback Thursday - Tribute to F1 legend Juan Manuel Fangio


A glowing tribute that chronicles the racing career of Juan Manuel Fangio (Italian pronunciation:; June 24, 1911 -- July 17, 1995), nicknamed El Chueco ("the bowlegged one", also commonly translated as "bandy legged") or El Maestro ("The Master"), was a racing car driver from Argentina, who dominated the first decade of Formula One racing.

He won five Formula One World Drivers' Championships—a record which stood for 46 years until beaten by Michael Schumacher—with four different teams (Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Maserati), a feat that has not been repeated.
