The average age of drivers in the inaugural Formula One World Championship race in 1950, held at Silverstone, was almost double the age of today's grid and, when Felice made his debut in the Swiss Grand Prix that year, he was five days short of 47. A star in the long, heroic Italian road races of the 1930s, his move to Formula One came with Ferrari, for whom he shone in several non-championship races. He entered his own Maserati in several grands prix in 1950 and drove a works Alfa Romeo in 1951, finishing third in the Italian Grand Prix. A move to sports cars followed, but he returned to Formula One at the end of 1952 and was going well in the works Maserati in 1953 before being killed on the Carrera Panamericana road race through Mexico.
