JeanL should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
This 300S have a annexe C windscreen,so it is after 1956 and before 1960,and a grid on the side,like #4/1957 and #10/1959 (the same car ?).

OK, we reckon that Moss spent the practice session playing in two Maseratis, the 300s and the Birdgage which is shown below.

The Birdcage was the original 2 litre Tipo 60 so it would be logical to make back to back tests against a 200S rather than a 300s. But I wasn't there and Maserati aren't famous for being logical.
