Wolfgang von Trips German Ferrari Formula One Driver
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
I have researched my e-book using newspaper clipping, Life magazines, and more recent bound volumes that chronicle the racing career of Wolfgang von Trips. Coming into the final Grand Prix of 1961 von Trips was leading his teammate, Phil Hill, by the narrowest of margins. If the German placed between 1st and 3rd at Monza, site of the Italian Grand Prix, he would win the coveted world championship.
