1958 Monaco Grand Prix


in 1958 a new order was emerging,
no longer was there the domination of the historic red cars from Italy
smaller teams from England with their innovations were beginning to take over

at the first lap no red car to be seen,it is the BRM from Behra,Brooks in the Vanwall and the Coopers of Brabham and Trintignant....

the big guns like Hawthorne in his Ferrari,above
and all the three Vanwalls like the Moss car below, retired

leaving the way for Trintignant in his little Rob Walker Cooper to win,
the first ever win at Monaco for a rear engined car
