16. The peace with Enzo Ferrari


Tazio soon recovered and invented ironic comments for photos in which he appeared.

At the end of 1934 Nuvolari entered into negotiations with Auto Union. It is known that in September Tazio had a double test drive with the 16C Tipo A rear engine: the first test at the Grand Prix in Spain, on the Lasarte Circuit in San Sebastian; the second in Brno, at the Masaryk Circuit. However, some pilots of the Auto Union (maybe Stuck) opposed to the signing up of Tazio. The engagement was broken, and the «wedding» put off: the Auto Union engaged Achille Varzi.
So «the flying Mantuan» signed the peace with Enzo Ferrari, and in 1935 Tazio was back in the Scuderia Ferrari.
He soon began again to win: in the first race of the season (at Pau, on an Alfa Romeo Tipo B called P3), and again in Bergamo, Biella and Turin with a more powerful and modified model P3 of the Scuderia Ferrari.
