  • Description

    American racing driver Phil Hill won his first Grant Prix, Sept 4, in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. No official British teams took part in this European Grand Prix. The boycott was staged because the British drivers claimed the banking on the 50-lap course was too dangerous for Formula One cars. No accidents took place.

    Driving a Ferrari Hill took an early lead over the field that was without such track aces as Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham. Without the challenge of the British stables the Italian Ferraris swept into the first three places. Hill's time over the 500-kilometer event was 2 hours 21 minutes 9.2 seconds. Another American Paul Rickie Ginther was second.

    The results of the race count in the Drivers and Constructors world championship tables. Australian driver Jack Brabham has already won the crown of the World Champion driver for the second successive year.
