The 1964 Formula One season was the 15th season of FIA Formula One motor racing. It included the 1964 World Championship of Drivers [1] and the 1964 International Cup for F1 Manufacturers,[2] which were contested concurrently over a series which commenced on May 10 and ended on October 25 after ten races. The season also included eight non-championship races for Formula One cars.

Season summaryEdit

The World Championship of Drivers, fiercely contested by Jim Clark, John Surtees and Graham Hill, was decided at the Mexican Grand Prix when Hill was delayed after a collision with Lorenzo Bandini's Ferrari. Clark was forced to stop with an oil leak on the last lap, and Ferrari signalled Bandini to let Surtees through into the second place which gave him the championship by one point from Hill. Honda made a low-key debut in grand prix racing with the American driver Ronnie Bucknum, and Maurice Trintignant retired at the age of 47 after one of the longest world championship careers. Ferrari also won the International Cup for F1 Manufacturers.[3]

  • Championship points were awarded on a 9–6–4–3–2–1 basis for the first six positions in each race.
  • Only the best 6 results counted toward the championship. Hill scored 41 points during the year, but only 39 points were counted toward the championship. Surtees scored 40 points, all of which counted toward the championship. Thus, Surtees became the World Champion, although he did not score the most points over the course of the year.
