The ALFA ROMEO 158 driven by Giuseppe "Nino" Farina won the first ever Formula One Championship Grand Prix race at Silverstone in 1950. Incredibly, it was designed and built by Scuderia Ferrari with the support of Alfa Engineers in the late 1937/8 and continued to dominate post-war racing until 1950. Viva Italia!
