F1: Remembering Ferrari’s 1st F1 Championship Winner

$RACE

Jose Froilan Gonzales was an unlikely-looking racing driver, he was burley, they called ‘El Cabezon‘ and he claimed Ferrari’s 1st world championship F1 race win.

José Froilán González (5 October 1922 – 15 June 2013) was an Argentine racing driver, particularly notable for scoring Ferrari’s 1st win in a Formula One World Championship race at the 1951 British Grand Prix. He made his F1 debut for Scuderia Achille Varzi in the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix. His last Grand Prix was the 1960 Argentine Grand Prix.

Mr. González competed in 26 World Championship Formula One Grands Prix over nine seasons (1950–1957 and 1960) and numerous non-Championship events.

In the 26 World Championship races, Mr. González scored 2 victories; the 1951 British Grand Prix and the 1954 British Grand Prix; 7 2nd-place finishes; 6 3rd-place finishes; 3 pole positions; 6 fastest laps, and 72 nts.

He won the 1951 Coppa Acerbo, in 1954 the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Maurice Trintignant, and the Portuguese Grand Prix for Ferrari.

Mr. González’s nicknames were The Pampas Bull by his English fans and El Cabezón or Fat Head, by his close colleagues.

On 10 July 2011, during the British Grand Prix meeting, González was honored by the Ferrari team and the FIA on the 60th anni of Ferrari’s 1st Formula One World Championship race victory.

As part of the celebration, Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso drove González’ Ferrari 375 F1 for 4 laps of the Silverstone track. Later that day, Mr. Alonso won the British Grand Prix in his Ferrari F150 Italia.

Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector.

Enzo Ferrari’s iconic Italian Supercar manufacturer claimed the title according to the latest Brand Finance Global 500 2019 report launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
