This race holds the unusual distinction of being the hottest race ever for a Formula One event, 104°F (about 40°C ). This record has since been tied twice, at the [[ 1984 Dallas Grand Prix]] and the [[ 2005 Bahrain Grand Prix]].
The extreme heat led to a scoring nightmare of 16 driver substitutions. Only [[Juan Manuel Fangio]] and [[Roberto Mieres]] finished the race without a relief driver.
* Fangio suffered severe burns to his leg which, for the entire duration of the race, was rubbing against the chassis frame which was being heated by the exhaust. It took him 3 months to recover; fortunately for him, the next race in Monaco was not until late May. It left a permanent scar on his leg later in life.
Grand Prix debut for: [[Eugenio Castellotti]] and [[Alberto Uria]]. Only Grand Prix appearance for [[Jesús Iglesias]].
Last Grand Prix appearance for: [[Pablo Birger]], [[Clemar Bucci]] , and [[Sergio Mantovani]].
