This dynamic scene depicts the classic 1955 Monaco Grand Prix, with the winning Ferrari in the lead (driven by Maurice Trintignant), second place Lancia D50 behind (Eugenio Castellotti) and the Mercedes W196 driven by Moss overtaking on the right, as they all race up Montée Beau-Rivage. Sir Stirling Moss was so taken with this work that he personally signed it.
Secondary Market: Original oil painting on canvas, created 1999. Considered by the artist to be one of his finest works of art. Call 949-443-0500 for availability.

The Flying Lap, Episode 24: Monaco GP Debrief with Sebastien Buemi & Keith Collantine
June 1, 2011
Duration: 1:11:36
We are thrilled to have Scuderia Toro Rosso's Sebastien Buemi join us online today from Switzerland. Buemi took the F1 world by storm by driving from 16th to seventh in his Grand Prix debut (Melbourne, 2009) and since then has finished top-ten on a further ten occasions, culminating in an excellent race in last Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix (tenth from 16th on the grid). Born in Aigle, Switzerland, 23-year-old Sebastien made his name with some dramatic GP2 drives in adverse conditions. He led an F1 race for the first time in Canada, 2010, and has made it through to Q3 twice so far this year. In addition, returning to join us in the studio will be F1 Fanatic's Keith Collantine, fresh off his numerous Monaco updates from his well viewed blog. With drama, shunts, controversy and glamour, the 2011 Monaco Grand Prix was definitely one for the ages.

The Flying Lap, Episode 71: Monaco GP Preview with Patrick "Paddy" Lowe
May 22, 2012
Duration: 1:09:02
Patrick "Paddy" Lowe is a no-nonsense engineer who loves his motor racing...and who also happens to be Technical Director of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes. I was privileged to work with Paddy when we were both at Williams in the early 1990s and was struck then by his disarmingly objective view of life. After I complained yet again about the steam pouring from the enormous cooling towers from a nearby (coal-to-electricity) energy station that dwarfed the Williams factory at Didcot, Paddy rebuked me with the simple words: "Why complain? That energy station is the most efficient in England. I admire it every morning as I drive into the car park..." The simple elegance of the 2012 McLaren MP4-27 echoes that philosophy. On a grid crammed full of strange, oddly-angled cars, the McLaren stands out as a victory for curves over (apparent) stark necessity. We'll be talking about Paddy's design criteria - and about life in general - in the build-up to F1's must-win, "Marquee" race - the 70th running of the Grand Prix de Monaco. On paper, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button head into the Principality as clear, obvious favourites....but then 2012 is turning out to be no ordinary F1 year. In addition - and fresh from the team's brilliant victory in the Spanish GP - Williams F1 Strategy Engineer, Mark Barnett, will be talking us through the Monaco GP from his perspective; and, courtesy of Hilton Honors, Lewis Hamilton will be introducing us to the driver's side of the most glamorous race of them all - PDW

The Flying Lap, Episode 72: Monaco GP Debrief
May 30, 2012
Duration: 1:21:01
We had our sixth winner from six races at Monaco last weekend - and Craig Scarborough, our technical expert, will be joining us in the studio to discuss how and why Mark Webber was able to win his second race for Red Bull Racing at the Principality. We'll be talking about the controversial "holes" in the floor of the RBR7, together with other technical developments seen at Ferrari and Force India. And joining us live on-line will be the Third Driver for Mercedes Grand Prix - Sam Bird. Not only did Sam score a brilliant win in Sunday's World Series by Renault 3.5 race at Monaco: he was also there, in the Mercedes pit, when Michael Schumacher took the pole. Conor Daly, recovering nicely from his horrific accident in the Monaco GP3 race, will also be talking to us live about his weekend - and about his recent straight-line test with Force India.
