Books - Fangio and Mercedes-Benz, Alliance of the Best (Author: Lehbrink)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine There have been many books about the life of the man who was, for many, the greatest racing driver who has ever lived and this takes a slightly different tack. The author acknowledges the raw statistics and we start with a potted history of Fangio’s early life and career. The next chapter concentrates on the men against whom his talent was judged during the 1950s and then we move to the largest single chapter, the arrival of the maestro at Mercedes and his two hugely successful seasons racing for them. The author is keen to point out that there is far more to the man than raw statistics and a large section of the book is dedicated to the memories of those who came in contact with him either as friends or rivals. The English translation of the original German text is excellent and there are plenty of carefully selected photos.
Over the years we have created a library here at GPM and many collectors regularly ask us which books we use most and which are the most reliable source of information. We offer quality titles selected for their reference material content.
