Designer Carlo Chiti

The Ferrari 156, affectionately dubbed "sharknose" due to its characteristic air intake "nostrils", was a racecar made by Ferrari in 1961 to comply with then-new F1 regulations that lowered engine displacement from 2.5 to 1.5 litres. It was designed by Carlo Chiti and was the first mid-engined racecar by Ferrari. It is one of the most iconic racecar shapes and one of the most distinctive of all Ferraris. Phil Hill won his only Formula One Driver's World Championship in it and the car also secured Ferrari their first Formula One World Constructor's Championship. In 'good' Ferrari tradition all the sharknose 156s were scrapped at the end of the 1963 season. Pop singer Chris Rea built a meticulous replica of a sharknose.

Monza Crash Edit

On September 10, 1961, After a collision with Jim Clark's Lotus on the second lap of the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, Hill's teammate Wolfgang von Trips' 156 became airborne and crashed into a side barrier, fatally throwing him from the car, and killing fourteen spectators.
