1963 FIA Formula One World Championship season
Previous: 1962 Next: 1964
Index: Races by country | Races by season

The 1963 Formula One season featured the fourteenth FIA World Championship of Drivers [1], the sixth International Cup for F1 Manufacturers [2] and numerous non-championship Formula One races. The World Championship commenced on May 26, 1963, and ended on December 28 after ten races.

Season summary

Jim Clark won his first championship with seven wins to two by Graham Hill and one by John Surtees in a revised Ferrari. The ATS venture, founded by ex-Ferrari workers, a complete disaster which ruined Phil Hill's grand prix career, was unrelated to the late 1970s German operation which was marginally more successful.
