Sunday 11th September 1955

64 years ago

Juan-Manuel Fangio led home Piero Taruffi for a Mercedes 1-2 at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza to put the crowning glory on his championship season. Notably, it turned out to be the last Grand Prix for the victorious Mercedes-Benz team and the next time a fully-owned Silver Arrows team appeared was in 2010, after their takeover of Brawn Grand Prix. It was also the last Grand Prix for Karl Kling, Roberto Mieres and 1950 Champion Nino Farina.
