EDITORS COMMENTS
Racing royalty gathered at the iconic Autodromo Nazionale di Monza for the 1968 Italian Grand Prix, where Formula One legends Bobby Unser, Pedro Rodriguez, and Mario Andretti took to the track. This print captures a moment of tension and drama as these three drivers pose together before the start of the race. Unbeknownst to fans, however, this would be a day marked by controversy. Both Unser and Andretti had competed in an IndyCar event just 24 hours prior in America, violating F1's rules regarding international racing commitments. As a result, they were excluded from starting the Italian GP. Despite their exclusion from the main event, this photograph immortalizes these American racing stars alongside Mexican driver Pedro Rodriguez, who ultimately retired from the race on lap 23 due to engine failure. The image showcases not only their impressive skills behind the wheel but also their camaraderie off-track. This rare snapshot provides a glimpse into one of motorsport's most thrilling eras - an era that saw some of its greatest drivers push boundaries both on and off track.
