Juan Manuel Fangio in a Maserati 250F at the Reims French Grand Prix in 1958, a race he finished 4th behind Mike Hawthorn and Stirling Moss. This is an original colored pencil drawing from a photograph in the book "Formula 1, In Camera, 1950-59" by Paul Parker. The artwork is on Stonehenge archival paper.

The Maserati 250F was a single seater with a 2.5 liter straight-six engine (240-270 bhp at 7,200-8,000 rpm). Later models were fitted with a V12.

Juan Manuel Fangio won the Formula One World championship title five times, in 1951, 1954, 1955, 1956, and 1957. The 1958 French Grand Prix was actually his last race.
