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.
