You will be aware of Riccardo's F1 career, but did you know that he also competed in the Giro d'italia on four occasions?

The first Giro d'Italia automobilistico took place in 1901 but it wasn't until 1973 that it became a regular event combining hillclimb events with circuit racing. Riccardo competed in the Giro for the first time in 1978 racing the new Fiat Ritmo that had been launched the same year at the Turin motor show.

This rare footage includes Riccardo racing his Fiat team-mate, and soon to be Ferrari F1 driver, Jody Scheckter at Monza.
