Hans Herrman on 250F

How can we know if a picture showing him at the Karussel (e.g.) wearing n°17 was taken in 1957 or in 1958 ?

Not only different numbers, but different helmets too!

like the car driven in practise by Horace GOULD.
This color as the car was distined to german driver Wofgang SEIDEL.
It was a CENTRO SUD Entry.
Nothing to say now about the color of Jo BONNIER's car.

I think it's pretty safe to assume that after comparing Bonnier's 250F with the photos in this terrific Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 thread.

Do we assume that Bonnier's car is yellow and blue? If so - COR! - that's a new one on me. Must get me paints out......

Herrmann drove Bonnier's other car in 1958, and it ought to have been silver since Herrmann was German. Centro Sud might have been involved in the entry, but it was a Bonnier car.

But not if Bonnier was the entrant! Driver nationality did not matter.

" Scuderia CENTRO SUD were out of luck this time.Indianapolis exponent TROY RUTTMAN was due to drive with them together with GODIA, BONNIERand HERRMANN.
However,the team had valve and piston trouble and by race day they had only
HERRMANN's and BONNIER's cars serviceable.
BONNIER now has the 1957 car which SCARLATTI raced last season:
it still basically red in colour but for the race was distempered in lurid blue and yellow.
There was considerable speculation as to the effect rain might have on this colour schemes !

But the paint-job was surely a quick one.
