Photo: The Monaco Grand Prix Monte Carlo 1961
We love these historic photos for collectors. This one is by the great Louis Klemantaski.
Car: Lotus 18-Climax
Driver: Stirling Moss
Track: Monaco (Station Hairpin, now Fairmont Hairpin)
Moss won the race by 3.6 sec over Ritchie Ginther in the debuting Ferrari 156 Sharknose, and Phil Hill (on his way to the championship) also in a Ferrari 156. This race had a veritable Who's Who of drivers, including Von Trips, Gurney, McLaren, Herrman, Clark, Surtees, Bonnier, Brooks, Brabham, Gregory and Graham Hill. Grid places were guaranteed to works teams, but Moss, driving for privateer Rob Walker, had to earn his spot. And earn he did, getting the pole. He also set fast lap, despite the fact that the Lotus 18 was in its second year, was Chapman's first mid-engined car and was generally viewed as underpowered.
