Stirling Moss cruising back to the pits, off the racing line on the Curva Grande, deep in thought…

The gearbox in his Vanwall failed during his dice with Mike Hawthorn’s Ferrari Dino 246 and with it his hopes of the 1958 World Championship, won of course by Hawthorn in Morocco a month later.

As to the other car and driver, my guess is Cliff Allison’s Lotus 12 Climax. All other entries welcome!

Tony Brooks won the race in another Vanwall VW 57 from Hawthorn and Phil Hill’s Dino’s after a stunning drive in his second GP, his first for Ferrari.
