Tonight, Germany plays Argentina in arguably the world’s biggest sporting event, the World Cup final. But for motorsport fans these two countries are known for providing two of the greatest Formula One drivers the world has ever seen, Michael Schumacher and Juan-Manuel Fangio. While it’s unfair to compare eras, the two legends have met on track once before.

In 1992, a young Schumacher met Fangio at the Norisring round of the DTM series and both drove on track together during a Mercedes parade. When these two met, no one would have known that the Argentine legend was meeting the man who would be the one to eclipse his five Formula One world championships.
