Background: In stifling heat the classic Grand Prix of Europe-this year incorporating the French Grand Prix-Was Won July 5 by British driver Tony Brooks on Ferrari. At a new record speed Stirling Moss on BRM lay third, then narrowly escaped a serious accident and left the race exhausted.
The American Hill (Ferrari) was second after a two-hour fight with Australian Jack Brabham who forced his Cooper into third place. O. Genedebien of France (Works Ferrari) was forth.
Brabham retains his lead in the race for the world championship with 19 points. Brooks is runner-up with 14, Hill is third with nine points.
There were 21 starters but the pace, the intense heat and the crumbling surface became so bad that many drivers had to drop out of the 258 mile race.
