1960 Formula One season

The 1960 Formula One season featured the eleventh FIA World Championship of Drivers,[1] the third International Cup for F1 Manufacturers[2] and numerous non-championship Formula One races. The World Championship commenced on 7 February 1960 and ended on 20 November after ten races. Jack Brabham won his second consecutive title with his Cooper team defending its constructors' title.

Season summary

The last year of the 2.5 litre formula produced repeat victories for Jack Brabham and Cooper, and saw Lotus, Porsche, and BRM campaigning rear-engined cars. Lance Reventlow's Scarabs, like the Aston Martins, were front-engined and outclassed. Stirling Moss' Rob Walker Lotus gave Colin Chapman his first Grand Prix win at Monaco and followed it with victory in the USA. All other Grands Prix went to Cooper, except for the Italian which was boycotted by the British constructors since the Italians were using Monza's banked circuit.

The points-scoring system was changed with the point for fastest lap being dropped and a point given for sixth place. The best six scores counted towards the championship, increased from five from the previous season.

It was the last World Drivers' Championship to include the Indianapolis 500, and the last season which saw a victory for a front-engined car in a World Drivers' Championship race.

Three drivers died in this season of Grand Prix racing. American Harry Schell in a non-championship race at Silverstone, and Britons Chris Bristow & Alan Stacey, both killed at the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps. Stirling Moss was severely injured in a practice accident at this event and did not compete for most of the season.

The German Grand Prix was run as a Formula 2 race at the Nurburgring Sudschleife because the Formula One race, originally supposed to be held at the AVUS Berlin circuit, was cancelled after drivers complained about the extreme danger of the Berlin-located track. The Moroccan Grand Prix, originally scheduled for 1 October, was cancelled for another year for monetary reasons.[3]
