The Germans loses on reliability
Entries:
There was a high quality entry at the French GP with all the top teams present. Caracciola made his return to Grand Prix racing at Montlhéry after a 14 month long pause. He still had great problems to walk, but once in the car he soon put in some very respectable laps.
      Fagioli had crushed the old lap record of 5:19 by doing a 5:11.8 lap during a Mercedes test on the track two weeks before the race. During practice von Brauchitsch showed the speed of the Mercedes cars by lowering that record to 5:05.6. Second fastest was Chiron's Alfa from Fagioli and Stuck.
      During the practice the Auto Unions were suffering from fuel pump trouble while Mercedes suffered from steering problems and high tyre wear. The Bugattis, which arrived at the last moment, had plug trouble and Ètancelin had both ignition and carburettor problems to worry about.

At the start Chiron came from the third row to take the lead followed by Caracciola, Fagioli and Stuck. Then the Germans started to attack. Stuck passed the Mercedes cars and then took the Auto Union up into the lead from Chiron on the third lap.
      Fagioli passed Caracciola and began to close in on the Alfa Romeo, breaking the lap record during the charge. Nuvolari was already in trouble with the gearbox and after 8 laps he gave the Bugatti over to Wimille. Situation after 8 laps:
1. Stuck (Auto Union)42m11.5s
2. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)42m§15.4s
3. Fagioli (Mercedes-Benz)43m27.2s
4. Caracciola (Mercedes-Benz)42m45.8s
5. Varzi (Alfa Romeo)42m49.5s
6. Brauchitsch (Mercedes-Benz)43m05.6s
7. Trossi (Alfa Romeo)43m13.2s
8. Dreyfus (Bugatti)44m29.8s

One after the other the German cars struck trouble, Momberger was the first to give up and then von Brauchitsch, who during the race never got up to the speed he had shown during practice, did a pitstop with engine trouble. He came back again but was soon out of the race for good. Order: Stuck, Chiron, Fagioli, Caracciola, Varzi and Trossi.
      Then Stuck started to struggle, falling back behind Chiron and the two Mercedes cars. By lap 12 Stuck was in for new tyres and fuel. Caracciola and Fagioli had a tremendous fight for positions while chasing Chiron's leading Alfa Romeo, bringing the French crowd to its feet.
      One can only guess what went trough Fagioli's mind. Before the season start he must have believed that taking the leading position in the team would be a piece of cake. Then came the Eifel incident with von Brauchitsch and now Caracciola's speed during his comeback race must have been a nasty surprise. The internal Mercedes duel ended in a draw, all three Mercedes drivers had to retire one after the other within a few laps. Von Brauchitsch with supercharger troubles, Caracciola with fuel feed problems and Fagioli with a broken brake pipe after having running off the road in his fight for the lead. order after 16 laps:
1. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)1h23m34s
2. Varzi (Alfa Romeo)1h24m42s
3. Stuck (Auto Union)1h28m56s
4. Benoist (Bugatti)1h29m47s
5. Zehender (Maserati)1h29m52s
6. Moll (Alfa Romeo)1h30m04s
7. Wimille (Bugatti)1h35m32s
8. Dreyfus (Bugatti)1h36m18s

The race situation had altered completely, the only German car left was Stuck's clearly struggling Auto Union, and Chiron could ease up. Situation after 20 laps:
1. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)1h47m17.5s
2. Varzi (Alfa Romeo)1h48m16.1s
3. Stuck (Auto Union)1h50m35.3s
4. Moll (Alfa Romeo)1h51m52.3s
5. Benoist (Bugatti)1h51m56.6s
6. Zehender (Maserati)1h55m13.9s

At half distance the Alfa Romeo cars went in for tanking and tyre changes. Varzi held the lead for a moment during the pit stops but then it was Chiron again at the top position. The Ferrari drivers Chiron, Varzi and Moll (who had taken over from Trossi after the car had lost both 1st and 3rd gears) took full command of the race with Stuck a distant forth.
      The only other cars left were Benoist and Zehender, Wimille and Dreyfus having given up their Bugattis with transmission and engine troubles. Then Stuck had a 15 minutes pit stop and Zehender a 20 minute stop while the mechanics tried to fix a leaking cooler respective a loose rear axle before both called it a day. The rest was just a Scuderia Ferrari parade.
      Chiron had won a great and popular victory, and the German teams had suffered a humiliating defeat. But from now on the Germans were to dominate Grand Prix racing.

Yet another Scuderia Ferrari parade
The ninth Marne Grand Prix (Note 3) was run a usual on the Reims road course.
Entries:
The Maserati entries from Team Straight (Straight, Hamilton), Zehender, Étancelin, Sommer and Nuvolari, tried once again to challenge the Ferrari team at GP de la Marne. But on the fast Reims track the Maserati cars had no real chance against the strong Ferrari - Alfa Romeos. Other entries included "Monzas" for Balestrero (Gruppo Genovese San Giorgio) and Soffietti (Scuderia Siena) and Bugattis for Brunet and Howe. The race program lists two Auto Unions and another German entry named "X" byt they did not appear.

When the flag fell Varzi took the lead. That was the last thing Nuvolari wanted to see so he immediately took up the chase, clearly overdriving his car while trying to keep the pace of his rival. After eight laps Nuvolari was in the pits with his tyres in shreds. Not willing to give up, Nuvolari started off again at full speed, perhaps too fast because two laps later he was back in the pit for another set of tyres.
Order at 20 laps:
1. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)
2. Varzi (Alfa Romeo)
3. Etancelin (Maserati)
4. Moll (Alfa Romeo)
5. Hamilton (Maserati)
6. Soffietti (Alfa Romeo)
7. Howe (Bugatti)
8. Sommer (Maserati)
9. Nuvolari (Maserati)
10. Brunet (Bugatti)

The other Maserati drivers were also in trouble, Straight and Étancelin were already out of the race and Sommer was in and out of the pits on almost every lap. Soffietti's private Alfa spun in the pit lane and crashed into Ètancelin's car but was able to continue.
      One tyre from Nuvolari's third set gave up just as he had passed the pits so he had to do a complete lap on the rims. Finally Nuvolari had to call it a day with a broken rear axle and nothing could hinder another Ferrari landslide victory. At half distance the order was:
1. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)
2. Varzi (Alfa Romeo)
3. Moll (Alfa Romeo)
4. Hamilton (Maserati)
5. Howe (Bugatti)
6. Soffietti (Alfa Romeo)

Chiron took the lead during the pit stops and then Chiron and Varzi were swapping places until the latter had to stop for new plugs giving the second place to Moll. After doing the fastest lap of the day Varzi came back to the pit with gear problems and handled over the car to Marinoni who went on to finish third behind teammates Chiron and Moll.
      Reims lies the middle of the champagne district and it was said that ten thousand bottles were drunk that day!

Footnote:
1. The usually mentioned length of the pre-1953 Reims-Gueux course is 7.816 km but it is clear from three independent contemporary papers that in this case 7.826 km was used for the official results. Motor Sport gives 500.864 km total race length corresponding exactly to 7.826 km course length. La Croix give 145.984 km/h medium speed, Le Figaro 146.984 km/h (printing error) corresponding to 500.879 km race length and a little over 7.826 km course length. All this assuming a 64 lap race. Paul Sheldon uses 56 laps instead for some reason.

2. Official program actually lists two Auto Unions plus another unknown German car.

3. 1. The official programme shows this to be the 9th Marne GP (thanks Simon Davis).

First Grand Prix victory for Auto Union
Entries:
The Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz teams made every effort to win the German GP and make up for the humiliating defeat suffered at the hands of Scuderia Ferrari at the French GP.
      Burggaller was deputizing for the ill zu Leiningen.
      Henne was replacing von Brauchitsch who crashed in practice, breaking an arm and five ribs.
      Geier was replacing the ill Henne.
      Nuvolari, private entry but nominally works Maserati.
Practice:
When practice started Eifelrennen winner von Brauchitsch showed his hunger for a repeat victory by going out and doing some very fast laps. But then he crashed badly and broke an arm, a shoulder blade, the collarbone and five ribs. There was crisis in the Mercedes pits as reserve driver Henne also was sick leaving Fagioli and Caracciola as the only drivers. To Neubauer's great relief Caracciola showed that he was back on his old form again but the team needed another driver at short notice. Mercedes employee Geier, who had done some sports car racing, got to his surprise an order to immediately come to Nürburgring. He was put in Caracciola's old Alfa Romeo for a few test laps and then entered as Mercedes' third driver.
      Auto Union was also out with their reserve driver Burggaller as zu Leiningen was ill.

It was a race where the German teams dominated, the Alfa Romeos and Maseratis being also runs.
Stuck took an early lead, followed closely by Caracciola. Hamilton's fine grid position did not help him, he retired with a blown engine on the very first lap. Lap after lap Caracciola chased Stuck, who was unable to leave the Mercedes driver. The two drivers raced each other at full speed, breaking the lap record several times and leaving the rest of the field far behind. Order after 5 laps:
1. Stuck (Auto Union)54m43s
2. Caracciola (Mercedes-Benz)54m47s
3. Fagioli (Mercedes-Benz)55m21s
4. Chiron (Alfa Romeo)55m23s
5. Moll (Alfa Romeo)56m49s
6. Nuvolari (Maserati)47m12s

On lap 13 Caracciola managed to surprise Stuck at the Karussell curve and take the lead to the huge delight of the spectators. It did not last for long however, the strain was too much for the Mercedes engine and on the next lap Caracciola had to retire.
      Stuck got back into the lead followed by Fagioli and Chiron, who was doing everything he could trying to stay with the German cars in his Alfa Romeo. Behind them came Momberger and Nuvolari. In the closing stage of the race Momberger had to retire, and Nuvolari moved up to fourth place.
      For a while Fagioli tried to catch Stuck but the latter was able to open a decent gap with his fast Auto Union. With four laps to go Stuck found that according to the meter the water was up to the boiling point! Each lap he passed the pits wildly gesticulating and each time he was ordered to continue by the pit crew. Stuck did the last laps expecting to hear the engine blow any second and took the flag 2 minutes in front of Fagioli.
      After the race the pit crew explained to a astonished Stuck that they knew that the water meter had been disconnected and was showing the engine temperature instead!
      So Stuck won, but the star of the race had been Caracciola, who had put up a sensational performance on a track that had tested his shattered hip to the utmost. Fagioli, who finished second, must have been very worried, as he saw his place as first driver for the Mercedes-Benz team slipping away. Geier had done a good job, finishing fifth and was immediately signed on as reserve driver for Mercedes-Benz.
      After the race private Alfa Romeo driver Maag was disqualified for having removed parts from his car before the weighing-in. That meant that Zehender took the sixth place. This was the first Grand Prix victory for the new Auto Union team and at the factory the joy was great.

Another street circuit victory for Trossi
Entries:
The first and only Vichy GP was run in two 30 lap heats and a 60 lap final on a tight city track. As it was raced the same day as the German Grand Prix several of the top drivers were missing but Scuderia Ferrari was there with Trossi and Lehoux and was challenged by a whole bunch of private Maseratis.

The entry for the final was made up of the top four from each heat plus the faster of the two fifth-placed cars. Étancelin took the lead followed by Lehoux. The tight winding track took its tolls as the Ferrari driver hit a kerb and had to do a pit stop. After one lap Ètancelin held a 12 second lead over Trossi with Straight, Dreyfus, and Falchetto following. Dreyfus pulled his Bugatti up to 2nd place and Straight passed Trossi as well. Soon however Trossi started to speed up and the Ferrari driver repassed both Straight and Dreyfus. As the race went on Étancelin's car developed serious brake problems. At the 34th lap the French driver could only look on as Trossi and Straight passed. So in the end it was yet another victory for the Ferrari team.

(Note 1)

The final developed into a fight between Lehoux and Étancelin. The former took the start followed by Chiron but the Alfa driver made a mistake at Saint Aubyn and hit the bank hard. So Lehoux led after the first lap followed by Étancelin, Staniland, Penn-Hughes and Scaron. Étancelin followed the leading Alfa closely and was soon by only to be repassed almost immediately. The top duo continued to swap places but it was soon clear that Étancelin on this track had the upper hand as the Maserati had higher top speed and he could pass the Alfa Romeo as he pleased on the straights. On the 23rd lap Lehoux had to make a pitstop for new plugs leaving the Maserati driver in front with a two minutes lead. So Étancelin made up for his frustrating defeat the week before by taking a fine victory over the Ferrari team, Howe being third in his private Maserati.

July 22th was a busy day for motor racing as there were the Coppa Ciano in Italy and two Grand Prix races in France plus the first Voiturette race for almost two months, all on the same day! That also meant that the entry lists suffered quite a bit. At Albi Team Straight dominated, Hamilton leading before having to do a pit stop leaving his team mate to win in an old Maserati 8C. Veyron finished 3rd in the GP race after winning the Voiturette race.
