He began racing Formula 2 with OSCA in 1950. For the 1952 Formula One season, he was invited by Scuderia Marzotto to drive a Ferrari in both their Grand Prix and sports car programmes. He made his Formula One debut at the 1952 French Grand Prix, but it lasted only two laps due to an engine failure. His next race with the team at the 1952 German Grand Prix didn't go much better, retiring after only a lap due to another mechanical issue.

Despite his poor luck, he was signed with Ferrari to drive a sixth car at the 1953 Italian Grand Prix. He qualified 20th on the grid, but his engine quit halfway through the race.

He left Ferrari after the race and joined Alfa Romeo to compete on their touring cars team. He continued participating in sports cars with both Ferrari and OSCA.
