Juan Manuel Fangio wins the first F1 Grand Prix at Pau. Maserati 4CLT/48, 10 April 1950…

He is ahead of Luigi Villoresi’s Ferrari 125, 2nd. Louis Rosier was 3rd in a Talbot-Lago T26C.

The first championship Grand Prix for ‘Formula 1’ introduced at the start of 1950 was the British GP held at Silverstone on May 13.

Fangio, somewhat fittingly is therefore the first winner of an F1GP albeit a Non-Championship one! Farina took the Silverstone race in an Alfa 158, the car of 1950/51.
