BACK STORY JULY 7, 1957..EARLY MORNING IN THE ROUEN PADDOCK WHICH WAS IN A LOVELY GROVE OF PINES. THE FERRARIS ARE IN LINE TO BE FUELED BEFORE THE START. CAR N.16 WAS TO BE DRIVEN BY THE FRENCHMAN MAURICE TRINTIGNANT, BUT DID NOT FINISH.

ONCE AGAIN KLEMANTASKI USES THE NATURAL COMPOSITION OF THE SURROUNDINGS IN EARLY MORNING TO EVOKE THE SILENCE BEFORE THE THUNDER OF THE COMING MASERATI 250F, PRESAGING HIS ASTOUNDING VICTORY AT THE NURBURGRING WHICH WOULD COME A MONTH LATER. STARTING FROM POLE POSITION, HE FINISHED ALMOST A MINUTE AHEAD OF MUSSO'S FERRARI.

COLLINS AND HAWTHORN CAME THIRD AND FOURTH FOR FERRARI, BUT TRINTIGNANT IN THE SCUDERIA'S FOURTH ENTRY RETIRED.
