Onboard with Juan Manuel Fangio testing a 1957 Maserati F1 car at Modena Autodrome

The story of the ‘Maestro’ himself – Juan Manuel Fangio – one of the most successful racing drivers of all time. Fangio was an ‘unknown’ when he arrived on the European Grand Prix circuits in 1948 from his native Argentina. But, in the next ten years, he was world champion racing driver five times. He drove for Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati and Mercedes-Benz, where his partner in the legendary Silver Arrows team was Stirling Moss.

Check out this short video in which Fangio tests the 1957 Maserati F1 car at the Modena Autodrome.  Onboard footage from 1957.  How cool is this!
