The man who tame machines

Netflix is about to release a documentary about Fangio, the fivefold F1 world champion who challenged death every time he got into a car.


What is it that leads a man to risk his life for a sport? Adrenaline, passion, love for cars, speed? These are some of the questions that the new  Netflix documentary:  Fangio: The Man Who Tame Machines is trying to answer, which is premiering this  Friday, March 20 .

When Juan Manuel Fangio got into a car in the 1950s, he did it without protective equipment. Netflix people set out, then, to try to understand why: “It's a film that  seeks to understand what led him and other  pilots  to risk their lives  running in cars that were flying at the same speeds as today, but with  minimal safety precautions  ,” the company reported.

The documentary film is based on a study conducted by the University of Sheffield in 2016, which determined that  Juan Manuel Fangio is the best Formula 1 driver in history:  he has the best winner average, he is the only driver to win F1 championships with four squideríHe is also the longest-lived champion driver in history (46 years and 41 days).

The   documentary  about the life of the five world champion was  produced and filmed entirely in Argentina . It is composed of archival images and, also, recreations of the time that were recorded at the Autodromo de Balcarce. It had the collaboration of the Juan Manuel Fangio Museum, which lent its collection of cars for filming.

 Fangio: The man who tame machines : an excellent plan to entertain us during the quarantine and get to know a little more about this great Argentine sportsman.
