True drama, slightly less hor­ror

I need to chal­lenge a point made about the DVD Fer­rari: Race to Im­mor­tal­ity (Books and Mod­els, April 2018) where you state that dur­ing 1955-1959 all of Fer­rari’s works Grand Prix drivers were killed.

The very great and very not late Tony Brooks was a works Fer­rari driver in 1959 who drove for Enzo in the Monaco, Dutch, French, Ger­man, Por­tuguese, Ital­ian and USA Grand Prix races. Tony re­mains one of the least fa­mous and least ap­pre­ci­ated great drivers of that, in many ways, dread­ful but glo­ri­ous era of mo­tor rac­ing. AW Fawkes
