Super Seven… Ferrari Grand Prix Victories

Today (July 14) marks the 65th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari’s first World Championship Grand Prix win. On that day at Silverstone in 1951, burly Argentinian Jose Froilan Gonzalez guided his 4.5-litre V12 375 to a 51-second victory over the 1.5-litre supercharged eight-cylinder Alfa Romeo 159 of countryman Juan Manuel Fangio to add Enzo Ferrari’s name to F1’s roll of honour.
