He finished in 12th place, which did not score any points. He even competed in a few non-Championship Formula One races. He co-drove no.37, one of the Bristol 450 team at Le Mans in 1953 with Lance Macklin.

In 1951, he started racing his half-brother Peter's ERA. In 1952, he raced in his Formula 2 Alta in the British Grand Prix. However, he didn't compete in any other F1 Grands Prix. He managed to finish second at 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans, which was two weeks before an accident on the Tour de France in which Peter was killed. Graham was to able to escape serious injury, and continued racing with an Aston Martin and Ferrari 250GT, until he retired at the end of 1961.[1]
