1963 FIA Formula One World Championship season

Index: Races by country | Races by season

The 1963 Formula One season was the 14th season of FIA Formula One motor racing. It featured the 14th FIA World Championship of Drivers,[1] the sixth International Cup for F1 Manufacturers [2] and numerous non-championship Formula One races. The World Championship commenced on May 26, 1963, and ended on December 28 after ten races.

Season summaryEdit

Jim Clark dominated the season in his Lotus, and won his first championship with seven wins to two by Graham Hill in a BRM, and one by John Surtees in a revised Ferrari. The ATS venture, founded by ex-Ferrari workers, a complete disaster which ruined Phil Hill's grand prix career, was unrelated to the late 1970s German operation which was marginally more successful.
