The new 275 F1 made its debut at Belgian GP. It has all new V12 engine by the new technical director Aurelio Lampredi. Unlike its predecessor 125F1, the new unit is naturally aspired with over-head single camshaft for each bank of cylinders, two valves per cylinder and three carburetors. Just one month later it was further developed by increasing the engine capacity to 4.1 litre. 340 F1 first race was GP Nations. Other modifications includes a new rear suspension, longer wheelbase and a new gearbox.
Even larger 375 F1 was ready for the Italian GP at Monza in September in which Ascari crossed the line second, just 1 minute and 18 seconds behind Nino Farina in Alfa Romeo.

The Motor YEAR BOOK, 1951     Ferrari.

  Cars built under the name of Enzo Ferrari are of entirely post-war design and production, although the Ferrari organisation has, of course, been concerned with the operation of racing cars and motor cycles for some thirty years. The car, as first laid down by Colombo, who was largely responsible for the Type 158 Alfa Romeos, was an unsupercharged V12 single camshaft 1½-litre, and by slight changes in engine dimensions this was later modified to a single camshaft (per bank) two-litre, which has formed the basis of a most successful Formula II racing car (q.v.).
  During 1949 the 1½-litre version with single-stage supercharger proved to be not as fast as the well-established Maserati 4 CLT San Remo type and was supplemented in September by a two-stage, two-camshaft-per-bank, model which won the Grand Prix d'Europe.
  On the broad factors of piston area and boost pressure this car should have been the dominant Formula I model of 1950, but in point of fact it suffered from both lack of speed and unreliability. On the very slow course of San Remo it made the fastest lap at 62.3 m.p.h. and ran second to a single Alfa Romeo, but, although running second on three other occasions, failed to score a victory. The older single-stage single cam model, on the other hand, scored one win at Jersey and two thirds.
  The main effort of the Ferrari factory in last year's Formula I racing was, however, in respect of a 3.3 or 4½-litre unsupercharged engine with single camshaft per bank. This has been developed by Lampredi to fit the existing chassis which have de Dion type rear axle controlled longitudinally by two parallel links embracing a trunnion bearing. This type ran fifth with a 3.3-litre engine at Spa and reappeared for the Grand Prix des Nations at Geneva in which one car had an accident and the other retired. Two 4½-litre cars ran in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in which one retired and the other was second, and in the last major race of the year three 4½-litres filled the first positions in the Penya Rhin Grand Prix in which the Alfa Romeo team did not run.
  The design of these larger unsupercharged engines was begun by Aurelio Lampredi in September 1949, and a 3.3-litre type (72 x 68 mm.), running up to 7,000 r.p.m., was put on the test-bed in March and run in the sports class of the Mille Miglia race on April 23rd and then at Spa. For Geneva the bore was enlarged by 8 mm., giving a capacity of 4.1-litres and the maximum revolutions reduced to 6,600, and an engine of these dimensions took third place at Barcelona. The first and second positions were, however, annexed by the 4½-litre version (with dimensions of 80 x 74.5 mm.), which was second at Monza, it being emphasised, however, that these variations in size have been made without basic changes to the rest of the engine structure. In common with the 1.5-litre two-stage supercharged engine, the weight of the 4½-litre is 420 lb. and this in turn is only 66 lb. heavier than the original unsupercharged 2-litre. The low engine weight is reflected in the chassis, the de Dion tube, for instance, having a wall thickness of only 2 mm. and the dry weight of the car being only 14.1 cwt. compared with the 15.8 cwt. of its most important rival.
  The performance of these models gives a clear indication that a new design of the greatest promise will be on the starting line for 1951 events.
