Ferrari’s 312T5

Here we see a clear view of the Ferrari 312T5 as driven by Gilles Villeneuve at the Monaco Grand Prix on May 18, 1980. Note the low, wide and very flat bodywork, trying to get clean air to the rear wing. The T5 was the final development of the combination of Ferrari’s well-known flat 12 […]

Looking Back

As the cars line up before practice with photographers all around, John Surtees looks into Bob Daley’s camera from his Ferrari 158/F1. The scene is at practice before the Monaco Grand Prix which would be run on May 10, 1964. The Ferrari entry for Surtees was the first championship race appearance of the 1.5 liter […]

Jaguar’s Ferrari

This view is of the grid at Goodwood for an over 2 liter sports car race on September 25, 1954. The Ferrari seen here on pole with Mike Hawthorn at the wheel would normally be called a Ferrari 750 Monza, but in reality it was an earlier model, a 750 Sport. It was the first customer […]
