Formula went from 2.4 litre to 1.5 litre engines and Ferrari was the most prepared with their 156 “sharknose” design. Only Stirling Moss in a Rob Walker Lotus was able to beat Ferraris on two ocasions, but the championship was decided between two Ferrari drivers – Phil Hill and Wolfgang von Trips. A tragedy in Monza, where von Trips collided with Jim Clark, killed von Trips and 14 spectators, and Phil Hill went on to win the championship.
