A very obscure request I know, but I am trying to identify the triangular logo on the Schell and Fangio Maseratis that raced at the 1957 Cuba GP. The logo can be barely seen in the attached link just behind the large ESSO logo, and it was on the top of the right front fender on the Fangio car. Identification would be appreciated, or perhaps someone with Joel Finn's book "Caribbean Capers" might find a better image or suggest a source. Thanks.

In Tom Burnside book "American Racing" there a better view of Fangio's car, but alas the down side of the logo is cut: a triangle with a steering wheel inside, on the left side two rows of a chequered flag. The same logo is on the boot. Expect this help...
