Footnotes

  • From the Estate of the late David John Peter Watson, equity card carrying professional driver. The Lancia D50 wheel was given to "Peter" Watson in Monaco by Fangio. They were filming a biopic that never saw the light of day, which involved Watson having to drive a number of Fangio's cars including the 1956 Championship winning Lancia-Ferrari D50. Fangio and Watson got on very well and the D-50's spare steering wheel (six hole rather than the 7 hole lighter version preferred by Fangio) was presented by Fangio as a token of his appreciation for all his help with the film.
