In 1958 Phil Hill was brought into the Ferrari Grand Prix team, but it
was not until the 1961 season, armed with Ferrari’s first rear-engined
car, that his obvious talent was unleashed. In the potent “Shark
Nose” Ferrari, Hill’s season became a straightforward battle
with team mate Count Wolfgange Von Trips, with Von Trips just ahead on
points at the penultimate grand prix at Monza. A clash with Jim Clark,
early in the race, resulted in the tragic death of Von Trips and with
Hill going on to victory, he gained the world championship in the most
unfortunate of circumstances. Phil Hill and the “Shark nose”
Ferrari remain one of the most fondly remembered, winning combinations
in grand prix racing history.
