Fangio v. Brabham

Just because you retire doesn’t mean your competitive spirit retires. What starts as a simple 4 lap demonstration at the 1978 Australian GP at Sandown quickly becomes a full on race as two drivers in two cars from two eras test their mettle. The 5-times world champion seems to strike first, pushing his W196 Mercedes Benz ahead of the 3-time world champion’s 12-years-newer Repco Brabham. The Benz seems to have the top speed, but the Brabham can outbrake it all day long. An astounding clip.
