Fangio: The Life Behind the Legend by Gerald Donaldson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


And he did it with a style, grace, nobility and sense of honour that were never seen before or since. Fangio flourished in an era when racing was raw and romantic, Ascari, Moss, Farina, Brooks, Gonzalez, Varzi, Fagioli, De Portago, Castelloti, Musso, Schell, Collins and Hawthorn - larger than life characters one and all, and all of them beaten by Fangio, who was also left to mourn the deaths of far too many of them. One of the most charismatic sportsmen of all time, Fangio: The Life Behind the Legend is a marvellously fitting tribute to a truly iconic figure.
