This Italian driver raced Ferrari sports cars in the mid-fifties, before switching to rivals Maserati.

He was a chain-smoker and a great friend of Jean Behra.

The 1956 season started promisingly, with a shared fourth place (with Landi) in the Argentine GP, plus a third at Naples and a fifth at Syracuse, but then nothing of note was achieved except a class win in the Maserati sports car at the Coppa Inter Europa at Monza.

In fact Gerini was not to reappear in Grands Prix until 1958, when, apart from a distant sixth place at Caen, he struggled to make an impression in the by now elderly 250F. He briefly reappeared in sports cars in 1960, when his Ferrari crashed out of the Nurburgring 1000 Km.
