Ascari versus Fangio excerpt

Here’s another short excerpt from the Ascari versfus Fangio story:

At the post-race festivities, it struck Ascari that Fangio, who rarely smiled or posed for photographers, was beside himself with joy. “That was quite the race, Juan. Congratulations”, Ascari commented.

“Thank you, Alberto”, Fangio replied. “I have never driven that quickly before in my life and I don’t think I will ever be able to do it again.”

That’s an odd thing to say, Ascari contemplated when walking away from the podium ceremonies. He suspected that, maybe, Fangio was thinking about retiring. Well, if he is, this race was certainly a statement of ability — he will have gone out with a bang.

We’d love to hear from you.
