Juan Manuel Fangio  born June 24 1911, in my opinion one of the top three Formula One drivers that has ever lived, though others may well disagree.

I've heard it said that Fangio, Clark, Senna are regarded by most as the "Holy Trinity".

I remember one story when he was in Monaco. He led the race and as he was coming out of the tunnel and towards Tabac he stole a glance at the crowd and noticed that the heads were turned away from him and were looking further up the road. He thought this could only mean that there had been a big accident around the next corner, so he slowed down.

That possibly saved his life, and the lives of some others who had been involved in a big accident round the corner.
