To finish the year,let’s recap one of our favourite moments of 2018 – when two V12-powered Ferrari 312 B3s were fired up at Monaco. That beautiful music bounced off the walls of the buildingsthroughoutthe Principality as the two red beauties powered through the armco against a field of eight-cylinder Cosworths. “Rain was forecast for the Sunday. Usually I would have beenhappy with that,”said Marco Werner, who droveone of the two ex-Lauda cars. However,on that occasions the three-time Le Mans winnerwasn’t so sure about the precipitation, given thevalue of the car he was strapped into. “Heavy rain, lots of puddles, and therefore plenty of opportunities to hit the wall. I felt the tension rising. As if racing at Monaco wasn’t exciting enough already…”

Despite the rain Werner finished on the podium. Having not made the chequered flag two years ago, this time around he came home in third. Making it even more impressive is that the team only finished its preparations in time for Monaco, without time for even a single test. We were there for the entire preparation and the weekend itself, as were our friends at Stereoscreen – because as great as pictures and words are, the sound of theFerrari 312 B3 is something that shouldn’t be missed. Check it out yourself by watching the film.


Ferrari in Monaco – exhibition on until March 2019
For the next three months, Monaco will be Mecca to Ferrari fans. As part of an exhibition running until 15 March, around 50 cars from Maranello will be on display. The initiator of this unique racing car show is Prince Albert of Monaco, who himself is the owner of around 100 classic cars and racing cars. They are usually on display at the Monegasque Automobile Museum on the Terrasses de Fontvieille, which is where the Ferrari exhibition is taking place.

Among the rare pieces on display in the Principality is the Ferrari Dino 246 F1, which headlines a series of F1 cars. The 246 was the last front-engined car used by Ferrari, and was active between 1958 and 1960. In its debut year Mike Hawthorn won the World Championship. The car taking part in the exhibition won the 1960 Italian GP with Phil Hill at the wheel – the last Formula 1 victory by a front-engined car. Fans will also get to see the 1961 246 SP, Ferrari’s first mid-engine racing car, of which only two were built. The car on display is the only one left. Wolfgang von Trips and Olivier Gendebien took it to victory at the 1961 Targa Florio, Hill and Gendebien won the 1,000-kilometre race at the Nürburgring in 1962, and Mike Parkes won the 6 Hours of Brands Hatch in the same year.

During the opening of the exhibition, Prince Albert of Monaco answered our questions in an exclusive interview which you’ll be able to read in issue #20 of AUTOMOBILSPORT. We’d like to extend our thanks to Team Methusalem, Stereoscreen, Strive Design, Studiopro, Peter Singhof and Prof. P. Zevnik for helping us put it together. 
We’d also like to thank our loyal readers, and wish you all a great start to the new season!
