Daring Racers: Formula One 1955 Season
This is an AAR of the 1955 Formula 1 season in Roberto Chiavini's Daring Racers.
For each of the Grand Prix the winning positions will be given, some narrative highlights and
the running championship position. Points are awarded to the top five racers and only the best five finishes out of six counts for the championship. The US GP is not counted as it had no bearing on the title only US drivers entered. Due to Pierre Levegh’s horrendous crash at Le Mans the French, German, Spanish and Swiss GPs were cancelled.

Argentine GP 16/01/55 Buenos Aires

1 Juan Manuel Fangio
2 Stirling Moss
3 Jose Frolain Gonzalez
4 Roberto Mieres *
5 Luigi Musso


Gonzalez started 1955 in pole from Castellotti and Fangio. Moss, Fangio and Gonzalez were neck and neck in the opening laps. Fangio and Moss pulled away while Karl Kling crashed heavily, and the resultant injuries ended his season. Midway and Fangio started to open distance between himself and Moss. The gap continued to grow with the Argentinian nearly a lap clear of the Englishman in second. Hans Hermann skidded out and received season-ending injuries. Fangio kept his massive lead to finish ahead of the plucky Moss with the Pampas Bull making a spirited last few laps to clinch third. Could this be Fangio’s year? Fourth-placed Argentinian Roberto Mieres picked up the point for fastest lap.

Stirling Moss took pole position from Ascari and Fangio while Hawthorn and Pollet failed to qualify on the difficult circuit. As Fangio edged ahead of Moss in the opening lap as the track claimed Ascari, Perdisa and Schell to retirements and an accident. The Englishman made a subtle move and edged in front of Fangio. The nip and tuck duel continued with the Argentinian regaining a slight lead towards the latter part of the race. The course was taking its toll with more retirements. Moss struggled to keep pace and Fangio eased towards his second successive win…. Which he did with Moss retaining second. Jean Behra crashed out on the last lap to leave Castellotti in third who also took the extra point for fastest lap.

1 Juan Manuel Fangio *
2 Eugenio Castellotti

4 Roberto Mieres
5 Paul Frere

Moss took pole from Fangio and Kling but aggressive driving early on from Castellotti, and Behra garnered them the top three positions with Fangio and Moss behind. The latter two regained their composure and swapped the lead with the Italian. In trying to avoid the decelerating Musso, Moss swerved off and crashed. Moss’s injuries would keep him out of the next two races. With the main competition gone, Fangio took a small lead which he increased as Behra spun out at the midpoint. Taruffi was killed when he lost control on a fast right-hander and ploughed into a tree. Fangio meanwhile broke the back off the chasing pack with some inspired driving and finished a lap ahead of Castellotti and Musso and claimed the extra point for fastest lap

Dutch GP 19/06/55 Zandvoort
1 Juan Manuel Fangio
2 Eugenio Castellotti*
3 Luigi Musso
4 Jean Behra
5 Roberto Mieres

Despite taking pole position Fangio made hard work of the early laps in 5th behind Castellotti, Musso and Behra. Moss retired early with faulty electrics as Fangio struggled to catch the leaders as Musso hit the front ahead of Behra and Castellotti. By midway those three swapped the lead on a near continual basis. Aided by a slew of retirements Fangio slowly picked his way up to second and obliterated Castellotti on the last lap to take his fourth successive podium finish. The Italian gained the extra point for the fastest lap.

2 Stirling Moss
3 Roberto Mieres
4 Eugenio Castellotti
5 Jean Behra

The British GP took a change of venue at Aintree, but in all other aspects normal service was resumed: Fangio took pole position and vied for an early lead with Musso. Mieres drove like a demon to swap the lead with Fangio and Castellotti and eventually gained a small lead. The titanic struggled between the two Argentinians continued through the middle of the race, as Moss clawed his way up the fields to a close third and then to the lead. The race was neck and neck approaching the latter stages with Fangio and Moss competing for top spot and Mieres and Castellotti with their own duel close behind. Anything could happen on the last few laps….. Predictably Fangio just edged the race ahead of Moss and Mieres. The British GP would be known for its bloodless character as only two drivers retired from the field.

1 Juan Manuel Fangio*
2 Stirling Moss
3 Roberto Mieres
4 Umberto Maglioli
5 Luigi Musso

With Fangio having sown up the championship by winning all five races, could he complete a perfect season at Monza? Predictably he took pole position but was overtaken by Moss on the first lap. However, after duelling with Mieres and Moss the Argentinian maintained a small lead. This was extended during the middle laps as no-one seemed able to keep up with Fangio. His dominance was total as he came close to lapping Moss in second, who himself had a healthy lead over Mieres. Fangio made history by winning all GPs in a season and taking the Championship by 20 points from Castellotti and Moss who tied for second.

I love these AARs, and *really* need to get my early 90s seasons to the table in 2018.
One though:
Quote:
Round 3: Moss’s injuries would keep him out of the next two races.
Round 4: Moss retired early with faulty electrics.
Round 5: Fangio just edged the race ahead of Moss.

Good Spot Avri. That's what i get for not applying the A2 result at the time. Moss, indeed should have missed both the Dutch and British GPs. Looks like I'll have to re-write the historywhistle
