What day is this? Does it even matter to you anymore what time is it? Does it feel like time is now only used to differentiate breakfast, lunch and dinner?

You’ve probably counted how many units there are in the condominium opposite the road and rearranged the cables that have for so long cluttered the back of your TV so here’s something to get you out of the rut.

Netflix has, very timely, released a biopic of arguably the best Formula 1 driver there ever was – called A Life of Speed: The Juan Manuel Fangio Story.

Without giving away too much, the film tells the story of the late Fangio, an Argentinian race car driver who had won five Formula 1 Driver’s Championships in the 1950s, unanimously dubbed the greatest of all time.

The comprehensive biopic not only covers the early life of Fangio but also offers a brief insight to the challenges faced by team and drivers in the early days of motor racing. In overcoming the hardships of World War 2, Fangio proved that he wasn’t just an extraordinary driver, but also an incredibly savvy businessman.

The story of the humble Fangio is also told by various Formula 1 greats from the past and present, showering the Argentinian with only the highest praises. There are also multiple segments where the man himself – shares various experiences and words of wisdom.

You’d also most definitely appreciate all the never before seen footages from the days of black and white production.

So if you’re looking for something to watch during your “lunch break” on the couch, in your boxers or even birthday suit, this is the one. You can thank us later.
