I was very pleased to read Denis Jenkinson’s appraisal of Maurice Trintignant’s performance at Pau, since I have held a similar view for some time.
One constantly reads of the lack of top-flight Grand Prix drivers and yet this consistently fast driver spent last season with Centro-Sud and looks like spending this season with an equally dubious Italian team. It is not so long since Maurice was putting up some excellent performances as a member of the Walker Equipe. In my humble opinion his safe, fast, unspectacular driving is urgently needed in at least one major British team.
