The first big name

in formula one

may have been

the best driver ever.

Fangio would win

five world titles,

a record that stood

for 40 years,

surpassed only

by Michael schumacher.

Whenever you drive those cars

that fangio had to race in,

it's very scary.

You have to hold yourself

on the steering wheel.

No safety belts.

The helmet was

just like a hat.

Goggles. And you

had to be brave.

The most celebrated

driver in a dangerous time


The year fangio retired,

1958, the formula changed.

The sport's governing body

announced from Paris

that formula one would crown

two world champions each season--

one title for

the fastest driver,

and another for the manufacturer

of the fastest machine.

Mario andretti:
This was

the evolution, you know?

Each team

has to take engines,

take chassis and technology

to the absolute limit.

In this

new competition,

the British began to challenge

the old world continental powers.

John barnard:
All the English

teams were considered to be

the garagistby... by Ferrari

and the other racing teams.

One englishman would set

the pace of progress,

in racing and the entire

automotive world.

Colin Chapman:
We basically

go racing 'cause I like it.

I like the competitiveness

of it,

I like the comradeship of it.

And I also like the technical

fallout that comes from it.

John surtees:
Colin Chapman

was a great character,

if at times a bit cavalier.

(Laughing softly)

Oh, I don't know about that.

Colin Chapman was

an engineer who learned to fly,

an entrepreneur who made

lightweight sports cars for the public,

as well as for grand prix,

under the name lotus.

In those days, lotus was

an out-and-out racing car.

My father, he was

always pushing the envelope.
