I just noticed that Cesare Perdisa, who raced for Maserati mainly, was only 22 years young when he made his debut in F1.
Like his best friend, the massively talented Eugenio Castellotti, he was extremely young for that era in F1.
Now I assume that Perdisa must have been pretty good because he was a factory driver at Maserati in '55-'56 and was hired by Ferrari for '57 but he stopped right after the death of Castellotti (which was entirely Enzo Ferrai's stupid fault with his big ego).
What I am wondering is: how good was Perdisa?
His performances are very difficult to judge since he gave his car to a lead driver each time he finished in the points (so he definately was a team player).
