Argentine Grand Prix (Buenos Aires), 16 January 1955.
Heinz-Ulrich Wieselmann, “Argentine Grand Prix: El grandioso Corredor Juan Manuel Fangio”, “das Auto Motor und Sport”, Germany, No. 3/1955:“Nobody who was there will ever forget that hell. […] Only seven of the 21 cars on the starting line emerged from those oven-like temperatures to finish the race. […] I saw drivers younger than Fangio flopping to the ground exhausted after only one third of the race, and hardened fighters resignedly handing over the wheel to the next driver. Whereas three drivers for each car were needed to get two Ferraris and a Mercedes-Benz to second, third and fourth places, the iron-willed Fangio covered all his laps alone. […] The race results show that Mercedes-Benz is equal to this tough challenge.”
