The fourth DVD disc in our series on the greatest drivers of F1
features the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio and Graham Hill.
Juan Manuel Fangio, a true legend in the world of motor racing, nicknamed El Maestro (“The Master”), dominated
the first decade of Formula One racing. He won 5 Formula One World Drivers’ Championships (a record which
stood for 46 years, until eventually beaten by Michael Schumacher) and Fangio did it with four different teams (Alfa
Romeo, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Maserati), a feat that has not been repeated since. Many still consider him to
be one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time. Fangio also has the highest winning percentage in Formula One
history, 46.15%, compared to Schumacher’s 33.83%. During Fangio’s short career (1950-1958, and he did not race
in 1952), Fangio started 51 races, won 24, captured 29 pole positions, and 35 podium appearances.
Juan Fangio Documentary – “Racing Through Time” (47 min)
An original ESPN broadcast from back in 2002 (watermark in corner),
this excellent documentary traces the remarkable career of Juan Fangio.
Graham Hill epitomized British style and class. A two-time Formula One World Champion (1962, 1968) and finishing 2nd
in points 3 years in a row (1963-1965), Graham was also the only driver to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport — the 24
Hours of Le Mans (1972), the Indianapolis 500 (1966) and the Formula One World Championship. Graham also won the
tough Monaco Grand Prix 5 times in the 60’s. With his son Damon Hill, he is part of the only father and son pair both to
have won the Formula One World Championship. Graham was tragically killed when the aeroplane he was piloting
crashed while attempting to land in foggy conditions near Arkley golf course in North London.
Graham Hill – “Driven”- (63 min)
This excellent BBC documentary aired in 2004, and covers Graham’s racing career as well as his personal
life. A great sense of humor, Graham was the darling of the British press in the 60’s and early 70’s.
