Fangio used to race on the basis of winning at the slowest possible speed; any faster was more risk for no gain
IIRC it was Fangio who lifted right off entering L' Eau Rouge and avoided running into the back of an accident that had just occured.
He gave the reason that he had only seen the sides of heads, instead of faces, in the stands and realised that something had happened up the hill. That's quick reaction


Looks like the cull hit hard here
