Profile

It is unlikely that anyone will ever match his feat of winning on his grand prix debut. Yet this is what happened when he joined Ferrari for the 1961 French Grand Prix at Reims. He raced sports cars before Formula Junior tempted Giancarlo to try his hand at single-seaters in 1958. Success in this propelled him to Ferrari in 1961, when he won the non-championship Syracuse and Naples Grands Prix. Then came his big day at Reims, where he resisted everything that Porsche's Dan Gurney threw at him. A limited season with Ferrari in 1962 was followed by a spell with the Italian ATS team in 1963 and another racing a Centro Sud BRM in 1964.
