Starting line

The starting straight runs from the end of Curva Alboreto (Parabolica) to the beginning of the First Variant and is 1194.40 meters long. For the races of the minor categories (Formula Junior) the so-called "Junior track" was used, now disused: it is a shorter circuit, which uses a section of the arrival straight, the opposite straight and the Curva Alboreto (Parabolica). The ring is closed by a slip road which, coming off the home straight about 200 meters after the pits, joins the opposite straight immediately after the Ascari chicane. The junction has three curves, the first on the right, the second on the left and the third again on the right. The length of the Junior track is 2405 meters.

At the last lap, Alberto Ascari leads ahead of Fangio and Farina. But at the Curva Parabolica the leader ends up in a spin, thanks to the presence of two lapped drivers. The accident eliminates Ascari's Ferrari and makes Farina lose positions, giving the go-ahead to Fangio for his first triumph at Monza.

At the end of the 1st lap, Derek Warwick's Lotus crashes against the guardrail at the exit of the Parabolica. The single-seater capsizes and ends its crazy race upside down. The fear vanishes when the Englishman emerges unharmed from the wreckage and rushes to the pits to get into the reserve car and line up for the second start, after passing the medical checks.
