This unusual composition shows the British race driver, Stirling Moss during a pit stop while competing for the 1957 Italian Grand Prix (Monza). After an engine failure, his teammate Tony Brooks gives in his car so Moss can win the Grand Prix, outstripping Juan Manuel Fangio. The painting shows the close relation between the spectators and the race pilots. Would you imagine such a pit stop today ?
