July 17, 2014 marks the 19th anniversary of the passing of Juan Manuel Fangio who lived to be a healthy 84 years old.
It was his final race win at the Nurburgring on August 4, 1957, where Fangio scored his fifth and final Formula 1 World Championship victory, that really etched the Argentine’s name into the record books.
Luciano Burti’s Formula 1 career came to an abrupt end on the fifth lap of the 2001 Belgian Grand Prix, after an attempted pass on Eddie Irvine in the blanchimont turn led to a head-on collision into the tire barriers.
Now, 13 years later, the helmet that helped save his life has been returned to him, with the mud and dirt from the accident still plastered over it.
