Continuing our exclusive look at the coolest new book of the summer – Real Racers: Formula 1 Racing in the 1950s and 1960s – by Stuart Codling, we bring you this snap of a pulse-racing moment at the 1958 Monaco Grand Prix.
Here teammates Mike Hawthorn (38) and Luigi Musso (34), driving Ferrari Dino 246s, negotiate a tight turn, closely pursued by Harry Schell in his BRM.

As it turned out, Maurice Trintignant bested them all in his Cooper-Climax, but at the moment above captured by lensman Yves Debraine, it was anyone’s race.
The book features highlights from the incredible Klemantaski Collection, one of the world’s largest and finest archives of motorsports photography.
A couple more glimpses can be found below, but you’ll need to snag a copy in order to go full throttle….
