The Formula 1 World Championship officially began with the uncertainty typical of the novelties in the 50s with the legend of Fangio, with Nino Farina as the first world champion, with the origin of Ferrari and the glory of Ascari, the chivalry of pilots like Peter Collins, the uncrowned reign of Stirling Moss and the rise of British brands like Vanwall, Cooper and BRM …

But by the 1960s, the passion for Formula 1 racing was already a reality. The world was ready to receive new legends. The decade of the 60s was that of British brands trying to maintain their hegemony, suffering the eternal attempt by Ferrari to reign again and the push of new brands such as Matra. They were the years of the Scottish flyer, of the magical combination of Jim Clark and Lotus, which allowed us to see one of the best pilots in history, and of his rivalry with another of the greats, Graham Hill.

It was also the decade when John Surtees, three-time world motorcycle champion, also tried to triumph on four wheels. And also the years of Brabham’s resurgence, this time with the challenge of achieving victory with his own team. It was also the time when Jackie Stewart began to forge his own legend, that of a magnificent driver who shone from his beginnings in Formula 1. The 1960s were ten years of passion, a perfect combination of the importance of talent of the pilot with the development of the machine, appearing the first and rudimentary ailerons.
