Walk-over for Ferrari
Siracusa, Sicily, April 13th.
Although the Italians may be trying to suppress real motor racing and confining it to tracks, the Sicilians think otherwise, and the Grand Prix of Syracuse ran to form as a pure Formula 1 road-race full of all the lovely noise, excitement and colour of true motor-racing. The circuit was completely unchanged from last year, though a little rougher as to surface and with a fair amount of loose gravel about in places, but nevertheless comparable with 1957 when Collins won with a Lancia/Ferrari at a speed of 164.797 k.p.h. and Moss set the lap record at 1 mm. 54.3 sec. (173.288 k.p.h.) with a Vanwall.
