Buon compleanno to the original Super Mario!


From the small village of Montona where he was born to a refugee camp in Lucca, Italy, where he spent part of his childhood, to a trip across the Atlantic with his parents in search of a better life, to the many tracks across the world where he built his legend, it's been quite a journey for motorsport's own 'Super Mario' - Mario Andretti.

The 1968 Indy 500 winner and 1979 F1 world champion, accurately described as the sport's greatest all-rounder, turns 84-years-young on this day.

And Mario's favourite place to spend the day is still behind the wheel of a racing car.

However, quietly savouring a bottle of Villa Andretti Chardonnay is the next best thing…

Buon compleanno a un campione e leggenda vivente!
