Some F1 single-seaters were modified (extended wheel base and engine with 4400 cc cylinder capacity) to have a go at the Indianapolis adventure. One car was assigned to Alberto Ascari for the 500 Mile race in 1952, which explains his absence from the Swiss GP on 18 May (won by Taruffi), because he was busy with the qualification trials for the American race.
Competing with the American cars, with a rougher design but perfectly suited to this type of race, was disappointing because Ascari had to withdraw with a broken wheel and the other cars, purchased by American drivers, failed to qualify.

30 мая 1952 года состоялась вторая гонка сезона в зачете Гран При "Indianapolis 500". Ferrari была представлена одной единственной машиной в красном окрасе, подготовленой для этой гонки. К сожалению к финишу она не доехала, сойдя на 40-ом круге по причине поломки колеса.
