When Giancarlo Baghetti spun off in the 1961 British Grand Prix, a spell was broken, for this, the fourth Formula 1 race of his career, was the first he hadn't won.
A fortnight earlier he had taken his Ferrari to victory at Reims, thus becoming the first - and only - man to win a grand prix at the first attempt. Prior to that, he had won non-championship races at Naples and - on his F1 debut - Syracuse.
Six years earlier another rookie triumphed in the Syracuse Grand Prix, but whereas Baghetti fizzled as quickly as he had flared, the victory of Tony Brooks heralded the beginning of a great career. Before travelling to Sicily, he had never so much as sat in an F1 car.
