The Scotsman praised the sporting qualities of Fangio and Clark because not only ran “eight or nine races a year in Formula 1 ”, but also“they drove sports cars, GT cars, etcetera “.

“Lewis drives extremely well,” said Jackie Stewart.
“The pressure they have today is much more relaxed. Of course they go to the factory and practice on the simulator, but that’s not the same. It is a different world “, added Stewart, who always professed a deep admiration for Chueco de Balcarce.
