The Cult of a Personality - Part 3
The sixties arrived with no change in the scuderia's philosophies, and next to no change in the car.

Phil Hill led a one-two-three for his team, the last win for a front-engined racing car and the 2.5 litre engine. Jack Brabham won his second title, and everyone went home to dream up a 1.5 litre engined car to run for the following season.
