Unique Driver Ratings – Fangio And Moss, Who Was Faster? | The Race Driver
Statistically – in percentage terms – Juan Manuel Fangio achieved the best figures of any Formula One driver, Senna and Michael Schumacher included. The Argentine won almost every second race and started from pole in 54 % of them – this in a career lasting from 1950 to 1958, when he was aged 39 to 47. He won five Drivers’ Championships, for four different manufacturers – Alfa Romeo in 1951, Mercedes-Benz in 1954-55, Lancia-Ferrari in 1956, and finally for Maserati in 1957, at age 46. He is rightly considered by many to have been the greatest driver of all time.
