Phil Hill and Wolfgang von Trips, both driving for Ferrari, were close for the Championship which either could win. Hill had 29 points and Trips was at 33 before the Monza […]

His Best Race

It might seem unusual to suggest that a top level driver’s best race was when he finished second. Although it would be a matter of opinion of course, it is very possible that Richie Ginther’s best race was the May 14, 1961 Monaco Grand Prix. For Monaco that year Ferrari entered three of its new […]
