1960 FIA Formula One World Championship season
Previous: 1959 Next: 1961
Index: Races by country | Races by season

The 1960 Formula One season featured the eleventh FIA World Championship of Drivers [1], the third International Cup for F1 Manufacturers [2] and numerous non-championship Formula One races. The World Championship commenced on February 7, 1960 and ended on November 20 after ten races.

Season summary

The last year of the 2.5 litre formula produced another Brabham and Cooper victory, and saw Lotus, Ferrari and BRM campaigning rear-engined cars. Lance Reventlow's Scarabs, like the Astons, were front-engined and outclassed. Stirling Moss' Rob Walker Lotus gave Colin Chapman his first grand prix win at Monaco and followed it with victory in the USA. All other grand prix went to Cooper, except for the Italian which was boycotted by the British constructors since the Italians were using Monza's banked circuit.

The points-scoring system was changed with the point for fastest lap being dropped and a point given for sixth place. The best six scores counted towards the championship, increased from five from the previous season.

It was also the last Formula One season to feature a Indianapolis 500 Race, and the last season which saw a victory for a front-engined car in Formula One.
