Friday's Ferrari

This is another photograph of the 1954 Ferrari 625 which took part in the SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2007.
When in 1954 the 2½ litre Formula replaced the 2 litre Formula 2 under which the World Championship had been contested in 1952 and 1953, Ferrari lengthened the chassis of the Ferrari 500 which had proved unbeatable for the previous 2 years and fitted it with the larger engine. The car wasn't particularly successful and efforts were made in 1954 and 1955 to improve Ferrari's chances with the 553 Squalo and 555 Super Squalo, but to no great effect. Alexander Boswell drove this car at the Donington meeting.
