Tim Layzell is well known for his pop-art paintings. In this bold, colourful artwork Layzell depicts the Stirling Moss Rob Walker Lotus 18/21 on its way to winning the 1961 Monaco Grand Prix. Aptly titled "Willpower versus Horsepower". Here is what Tim says about the painting:
In 1961, at the dawn of a new Grand Prix formula for 1½ litre cars, Enzo Ferrari was typically well prepared and his V6-engined Dino 156 cars were the class of the field. In contrast, the British teams had to make do with 4 cylinder Climax engines giving away as much as 40bhp to the Italian cars. Ferrari had, however, reckoned without the genius of Stirling Moss. Around the streets of Monaco, in a year old Lotus 18 Moss led the Ferraris of Richie Ginther and Phil Hill for the full 100 laps, his winning average being under his pole position lap.
