5: Monaco Grand Prix 1935. 1935
Artist: GEO HAM (Georges Hamel, 1900-1972) Size: 31 x 46 7/8 in./78.7 x 119 cm Imp. Monégasque, Monte-Carlo With the Nazi regime fully in control of Germany, the Mercedes-Benz team arrived with the most powerful cars ever used in Grand Prix history, easily winning first prize. With Italian driver Luigi Fazioli at the wheel, the 3.99-liter Mercedes W25 model led from start to finish, never seriously challenged by the three Alfa Romeos and the Maserati that took the next four spots. On the poster, Ham puts us right in the action, against the glittering background of sun-drenched Monte Carlo.
