Alberto Ascari
won 2 World Championships and 13 GP.
He still, to this day, holds the record for the highest number of victories in a single season, winning 6 out of 8 races in 1952, and has the record for 7 fastest laps in consecutive races. Ascari is the last Italian racer to win the World Championship. Renown in the racing world as a very superstitious person, he always raced with the same T-shirt and his blue helmet, and he always wore his racing shoes in a specific order.
Ascari died few weeks after the Valentino Park race shown in this exhibition, on the 26th of May 1955, while his pupil and friend Eugenio Castellotti was testing a new Ferrari on Monza track, he asked him to try the car for few laps, on that day, he didn't follow his usual rituals and seated on the car without his lucky T-shirt and his inseparable blue helmet.
