The British Grand Prix at Silverstone on the 13th of May was the first round of the
Drivers' Championship, and the Ferraris were conspicuous by their absence. Alfa

Even though he won the World Championship in 1950, in truth his best days
were in the later1930's, when this hard and ruthless driver with the (then)
distinctive straight-arm driving style won the Italian Drivers Championship for
three years 1937, 1938, and 1939. So dominant at ... Obviously the organisers for
