Five-time F1 world champion Juan Manuel Fangio's body is to be exhumed for a paternity test.
An Argentinian judge has ordered for the test to see if Fangio is the father of Oscar Espinoza. Espinoza is the son of Andrea Berruet, who was Fangio's partner for two decades. Fangio never married and was not known to have had children. He died on July 17, 1995, at the age of 84.
Fangio's body is buried in his hometown of Balcarce in Argentina, but will be exhumed on August 7 and a DNA sample taken from his remains following Espinoza's claim that he is the son of the F1 legend.
