In a period when fat Italians regularly occupied the cockpits of Formula 1 cars, to Horace Could it seemed quite reasonable that a fat Bristolian should do the same. After all, he had spent a couple of seasons competing in a Cooper-Bristol - albeit usually in second-division races, with the notable exception of the 1954 British GP. So for 1955 he took himself off to Modena and bought a Maserati 250F, living a hand-to-mouth existence and scrounging parts from the factory to keep his machine on the grid.

Horace enjoyed a nomadic three seasons on the Continent, entering selected Grands Prix (his best result was fifth at Silverstone in 1956) and cannily entering his 'Maser' in non-championship races where starting money was good and the chances of decent placings were high. Horace finished third at Albi and fourth at Syracuse in 1955, second at Naples in 1956 and fourth, behind the three works Ferraris of Hawthorn, Collins and Musso, in the same race in 1957. Once the factory withdrew, it was really the end for Could, who could no longer gain the assistance he needed to keep running the car. His last hurrah was a fourth place at Syracuse in 1958, though he was tempted back just one more time - to the boycotted 1960 Italian GP - where the old Maserati failed even to turn a wheel in practice due to crossed fuel-lines. Horace, who later helped his son in his racing activities, died of a sudden heart attack in 1968.
