|1956 Argentine Grand Prix: Least in the Kingdom is GreaterSpeaking of the power of humility, the Bible says the least, within the context of the world, if they follow God's commands, shall be greater than those considered great. |
To say that Luigi Musso was the least within the kingdom of Scuderia Ferrari would be a terrible understatement. Having a reputation for caring more about his cars than those that pilot them, it was certainly true that Enzo held little place in his heart for his fellow Italian. However, in the Roman's very first Formula One....
|Luigi Musso: Talented, Tempting and TroubledFollowing Alberto Ascari's back-to-back titles in 1952 and 1953 there have been no Italian Formula One World Champions. While there has been a great amount of hope throughout the years, Italians have been left without a World Champion. Perhaps, it could be argued, all such hopes died with Luigi Musso on the 6th of July in 1958.|
Since Ascari there have certainly been some notable Italian drivers within Formula One history books. Such names as Michele Alboreto, Elio de Angelis, Alex Zanardi, Ri....

A little more than a decade later, these difficult mountainous roads were taking their toll. But, there would be one Italian right at home among the rocky outcroppings. |
The 42nd Targa Florio would go ahead as planned despite the growing c....
|1956 Sebring 12 Hours: Musso Impresses on American SoilHaving more than proven himself within the 2.0-liter category with the factory Maserati team, Luigi Musso makes the short trip west from Modena to Maranello to drive for Ferrari. This would be a big step up in performance, for car and driver. Here Musso's real talent would need to be realized. Otherwise, the Italian would find himself an estranged patriot without a home. But, on American soil, the young Italian would find his place. |
The Roman Musso had had an impressive run with Maserati. Af....
