1960 Buenos Aires GP in Pictures

A transitional year to be sure. The mid-engine revolution had officially begun, but the Coopers still looked awfully odd out there amongst all those front-engined machines. Can anyone tell me what’s going on in the image of Harry Schell in his Cooper T51? It almost looks like someone is trying to toss him a drink!

Dan Gurney in a BRM really gave Maurice Trintignant a run for his money, but ultimately Maurice’s Cooper won the day; beating Gurney by nearly a minute.
