Monaco 2008 was the 600th Grand prix for Williams, i was too young in the late 60's (thankfully) to have followed their start,but in the 70's i fully latched on...always loved the underdog...here are some models i used to make.
over the years i've had some paintings in the Williams conference center and museum,

Ascari in his Lancia pasing the pits.The two Mercedes' were not as reliable as they were fast,first Fangio then Moss would retire with mechanical problems.Just as Ascari would take over the lead he crashed into the Monaco harbour,a spectacular accident which he survived,only to be killed in a testing accident a few days later...
After the Merceds' and Lancias were out of the way,the road was clear for local hero Maurice Trintignant in his Ferrari to take a fortunate but popular win. sold
