Luigi Villoresi & Alberto Ascari

Luigi Villoresi and Alberto Ascari are perhaps the 2 of the most famous Italian F1 drivers from the mid-20th century, it’s very rare to find a picture of them together despite the fact that they travelled the world racing in some of the first sanctioned Formula 1 races after WW2.

I like this photograph because it shows the two men just chatting, in much the same way you’ll find Italian guys shooting the breeze on any street corner in Milan.
