Look, I've learned how to insert quotes:
And don't be shy if you're new to the sport and think it poor form to ask what seems to be a dumb question - we are only too happy to help provide you with an answer - or an opinion at any rate.
Just one of my favorites gripes whenever I see a supposed "history" of F1, which almost all seem to start with 1950 even though the formula itself dates from 1947...
Both quotes are from our highly revered Forum Host in RVM, and hint my intentions. I guess (and hope) that I'm not the only one here to be completely ignorant of happenings in this period, although there was a remark on that on this forum, and on Cisitalia thread was a mention of Porsche and Cisitalia preparing a GP car in '47. I, for one, would be very much obliged if you could shed some light on those years, and perchance on reason for them to be ignored.
Many thanks in advance.
O.T. What's up with Ray? He hasn't been around for quite some time.
