Yet, there were some fantastic talents on board in the mid-1950s, with Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss being prominent names in that regard. They form the first part of this nostalgic list of famous… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton: The Second Most Successful Driver in F1

Lewis Hamilton finally took his spot as one of the Formula 1 greats when he grabbed his fifth World Drivers’ Championship (WDC) at the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix last Sunday. He is now tied with Juan Manuel Fangio in the record books in terms of having the most championships in the sport.
