Profile

"Toulo", or Baron de Graffenried to be correct, was one of the stars in the post-war years, winning the 1949 British Grand Prix in a Maserati. He drove the same car when the World Championship began in 1950 and struggled against his rivals' newer equipment. Alfa Romeo gave him a run at the non-championship Geneva Grand Prix and he came second. Alfa signed him for 1951. In 1952 and 1953, he raced with a Maserati, coming fourth in the 1953 Belgian Grand Prix - his best result. He also won the non-championship Syracuse Grand Prix.
