1960 Formula One World Championship (partially found footage of Formula One races; 1960)
The 1960 Formula One World Championship was the 11th FIA-sanctioned top-level Grand Prix racing season. It saw Cooper-Climax's Jack Brabham secure his second consecutive World Championship, winning five consecutive races. Five events, including the Monaco, Dutch, French, British, and Portuguese Grand Prix, are known to have received television coverage.
1960 Monaco Grand Prix
The 1960 Monaco Grand Prix was the second race of the 1960 Formula One Season. Occurring on 29th May at the Circuit de Monaco, the race was ultimately won by Stirling Moss in a Rob Walker-owned Lotus-Climax, marking the first World Championship win by a Lotus car. The event also marked the debut of future World Champion John Surtees.
It was the seventh running of the event as part of Formula One following its debut on the calendar in 1950. It was also the 18th in Grand Prix history. Lasting 100 laps, the Monaco Grand Prix remains an integral event of the Formula One calendar, including being prestigious enough to be classified as part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport, alongside the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Indianapolis 500.
Heading into the race, the works Lotus team were bolstered with the signing of future champion John Surtees, while the privateer Walker team replaced their Cooper-Climax in favour of a Lotus 18 for Moss. As Coventry-Climax had developed its engine to produce another 20bhp, it enabled Lotus and Cooper to generally control qualifying. Moss broke the lap record set the previous year in both qualifying sessions, achieving pole position with a time of 1:36.3. The only issue he experienced was that he became soaked with petrol that had leaked from the Lotus' fuel tank during one session. Defending two-time champion Jack Brabham lined up second in a Cooper-Climax, with Brooks third in a BRP-owned Cooper. Surtees qualified 15th, with only the top 16 fastest drivers being allowed to start the race. In total, eight failed to qualify for the event, while notably all 16 qualifiers broke the previous year's lap record. Among those who failed to qualify included Ferrari's Cliff Allison, who suffered a broken arm and fractured ribs after crashing at entrance of the chicane, which threw him free from his car.
With the starting order decided, the 1960 Monaco Grand Prix commenced on 29th May. Jo Bonnier, who qualified fifth in a BRM, made the strongest start and was in first by the time the cars reached the first hairpin. Brabham moved past Moss, who was now down to third. On lap 4, Brabham attempted to move by Bonnier at the hairpin, but the BRM held strong, while Brabham would be overtaken by Moss a lap later. Moss was now pressurising Bonnier, but despite the BRM driver attempting to wave the Lotus by, Moss elected to stay behind and enable Bonnier to reluctantly set the race pace. This was to the BRM's detriment as each usage of the brake required a re-pumping of the brake pedal. Eventually, with other drivers closing in on them, Moss moved into first on lap 17 and already produced a gap of five seconds, while Brabham passed the Swede for second. Surtees retired in his debut race after 17 laps following a transmission failure, while Brabham and Bonnier duelled for second. As Bonnier re-passed for Brabham for second on lap 27, rain emerged a lap later. Moss proved overly-cautious, enabling Brabham to catch-up and pass both him and Bonnier to re-gain the lead on lap 34.
However, Brabham damaged his Cooper's chassis on lap 41 after hitting a wall, which combined with gearbox problems, forced his retirement. This allowing Moss to move back into first, and when sunny weather emerged on lap 46, he began to control the race again. However, his 14-second lead on Bonnier was nullified when he made an impromptu pitstop after losing a cylinder. It turned out a plug lead was detached, and with it re-attached, Moss began to close in on the BRM. By lap 67, he was directly behind Bonnier, while Ferrari's Phil Hill passed Cooper-Climax's Bruce McLaren for third. BRM's Graham Hill also attempted to pass McLaren, but ended up spinning off and smashing into the commentators' box. Meanwhile, Moss re-passed Bonnier, the latter then retiring on lap 78 following a split rear suspension. McLaren had earlier re-passed Hill; thus he was now in second but considerably behind Moss. At this point, only four cars were on-track, prompting Brabham, Bonnier and others to hastily repair their vehicles to try and limp for the final points positions.
Elsewhere, Moss claimed the first ever victory for a Lotus car and eight points in the Drivers' Championship. McLaren beat Hill for second, while Cooper-Climax's Tony Brooks finished fourth. Bonnier and Ferrari's Richie Ginther claimed the final points positions of fifth and sixth respectively, being numerous laps behind the leader. Years later, Moss recalled that while the works Lotus team was happy that a Lotus car won the race, they were disappointed that it was not from one of its works drivers. He nevertheless stated "I think they would certainly be happy to have the win, but pretty disappointed it wasn't one of their cars. I certainly would have been very disappointed if I couldn't beat Lotus. Or any of the other drivers. That's what one is out there to do."

1960 French Grand Prix
The 1960 French Grand Prix was the sixth race of the 1960 Formula One Season. Occurring on 3rd July at the Circuit de Reims, the race was ultimately won by Jack Brabham in a Cooper-Climax, in an event Brabham deemed was his "most satisfying".
It was the tenth running of the event in the Formula One calendar, with the race lasting 50 laps. The 39th French Grand Prix overall, the race has been held at a variety of circuits, with the last one held at Reims occurring in 1966. After the race was dropped from the schedule in 2009, it returned in 2018, where it has consistently been held at Circuit Paul Ricard.
Heading into the race, the Formula One world was shaken by the accidents at the Belgian Grand Prix, which saw Chris Bristow and Alan Stacey lose their lives in separate accidents, Mike Taylor suffer career-ending injuries, and Stirling Moss suffer leg injuries that side-lined him for the rest of the season. Elsewhere, McLaren led teammate Brabham with 20 points compared to the latter's 16. Cooper appeared the most-prepared for the race, with Brabham achieving pole position with a time of 2:16.8. No other driver came close to challenging Brabham, with Phil Hill qualifying second in a front-engine Ferrari with a time of 2:18.5, while BRM's Graham Hill took third. Motor Sport deemed Brabham's performance as "doing a Fangio and upholding his World Championship status". However, Ferrari believed their cars would be best-suited to the high-speed Reims circuit, with Enzo Ferrari pressurising Hill to win after a barren season for the team. Title challenger McLaren qualified seventh out of 23 competitors. Meanwhile, Tony Brooks was handed a new Vanwall car, in what would turn out to be the last World Championship start for the inaugural Constructors Champion. He would start 13th on the grid.
With the starting order decided, the 1960 French Grand Prix commenced on 3rd July. At the start, Graham Hill's gearbox jammed, where he was then hit from behind by Cooper-Climax's Maurice Trintignant. Meanwhile, Cooper-Climax's Lucien Bianchi spun right and collided with Brooks and Cooper-Climax's Bruce Halford, although the trio were able to continue. Brabham led ahead of Phil Hill and Hill's teammate Wolfgang von Trips, holding onto it until Hill moved by on lap 4. The two Ferraris and Brabham easily left the others behind, and Hill and the Cooper continued swapping the lead each lap with von Trips not far behind. On lap 7, Brooks retired after complaining about vibrations, despite no anomalies being detected by his team, ending Vanwall's involvement in the World Championship. By lap 19, von Trips was now over 30 seconds behind, as the Ferrari narrowly led the Cooper. Eventually, having also set a new lap record, Brabham won the duel by lap 25, with Hill having now dropped behind von Trips. Four laps later, Hill retired when a transmission issue led to him colliding into straw bales situated near the pits, the resulting collision twisting his Ferrari's front axle.
Two laps later, von Trips was also out following a transmission failure, allowing Brabham to control proceedings. Lotus-Climax's Innes Ireland moved up to second, but was 90 seconds behind Brabham. However, he retired three laps later following a suspension failure. Now, the top three consisted of Coopers, with Olivier Gendebien driving a BRP-owned Cooper ahead of McLaren. Despite boasting a newer Cooper, McLaren was out-matched by Gendebien, the Belgian managing to continually re-pass the New Zealander through braking later and accelerating faster in the corners.
Elsewhere, Brabham claimed his third consecutive World Championship victory and eight points in the Drivers' Championship. His win occurred in fewer than two hours, which put the race under scrutiny by the FIA for failing to comply with minimum race lengths and times for World Championship races. Gendebien pipped McLaren for second, while BRP Cooper-Climax driver Henry Taylor made it a Cooper 1-4. Lotus-Climax drivers Jim Clark and Ron Flockhart took the final points positions of fifth and sixth respectively, Flockhart nearly beating his teammate over the line. Years later, Brabham regarded the race as his "most satisfying", primarily over his duel with Hill and for beating Ferrari when they considered themselves the favourites to win due to their cars' higher top speed. Following the race, Brabham now tied with McLaren on 24 points in the Drivers' Championship standings, with Cooper leading Lotus 38 points to 19 in the Constructors' Championship.
1960 British Grand Prix
The 1960 British Grand Prix was the seventh race of the 1960 Formula One Season. Occurring on 16th July at the Silverstone Circuit, the race would ultimately be won by Jack Brabham in a Cooper-Climax, capitalising when BRM's Graham Hill retired from the lead with a few laps remaining. This also marked Brabham's fourth consecutive World Championship victory, the first to achieve this since Alberto Ascari in 1952. The race was also the first to be televised by ITV.
It was the 11th running of the event within Formula One, with the race lasting 75 laps. The 15th British Grand Prix overall, the event has remained an annual race on the Formula One calendar, primarily taking place at Silverstone, although Aintree and Brands Hatch have also hosted the event.
Heading into the race, Brabham and teammate Bruce McLaren were level in the Drivers' Championship with 24 points each. The Coopers again proved competitive, with Brabham achieving pole position with a time of 1:34.6. Nevertheless, BRM were proving to be the biggest challenges to the Coopers, with Ferrari and Lotus-Climax slightly off the pace. Graham Hill would qualify between Brabham and McLaren in second, with his teammate Jo Bonnier in fourth. John Surtees made his second race start after return from motorcycle racing, qualifying 11th out of 25 competitors, his time hampered by a persistent misfire from his Lotus-Climax's spark plugs. Following his accident at the Belgian Grand Prix, Stirling Moss returned as the race starter.
With the starting order decided, the 1960 British Grand Prix commenced on 16th July. Hill stalled his BRM for the second consecutive race, but this time did not cause a collision, allowing him to continue in 21st. Brabham led the field, while Bonnier and Ireland jumped McLaren for second and third respectively. By lap 6 however, Hill was making a strong comeback, having already moved up ten places, while Ireland passed Bonnier for second. Hill then passed the Ferraris of Phil Hill and Wolfgang von Trips, before capitalising on fellow BRM driver Dan Gurney's gear lever issues to move to seventh. Surtees and fellow Lotus-Climax driver Jim Clark were also on the move, passing both McLaren and Bonnier for third and fourth respectively. However, neither they nor Ireland were challenging Brabham at the front. On lap 20, Hill passed Bonnier, whereas Clark took third from Surtees. Hill then passed McLaren a few laps later, eventually closing in on the Lotus drivers by lap 28.
Ireland meanwhile had reduced the gap to Brabham to four seconds, while Surtees and Hill both overtook Clark during the pitstops. By lap 31, Hill passed Surtees for third, and would soon catch-up and overtake Ireland on lap 37 to leave just Brabham ahead of him. After both negotiated traffic, Hill would ultimately nullify the Cooper's seven second lead by lap 52. Despite Brabham's attempts to keep the Brit behind him, by lap 55 the BRM was now leading. Surtees and Clark then moved into third and fourth respectively when Ireland car's hubs developed issues, although he was able to continue. Three laps later, Clark was out of contention when his Lotus' front suspension broke, forcing him to drive on at slow speeds when it was hastily repaired. Despite Hill having overtaken the Australian, he was unable to drive away from him, with the Cooper continually challenging the BRM. By lap 70, Hill was about 1.5 seconds ahead of Brabham, as they lapped numerous drivers ahead of them.
Ultimately, Brabham's pressure on Hill paid dividends. Hill's strong pace had weakened his BRM's brakes due to constant pumps on the brake pedal. Eventually, on lap 72, Hill spun-off into a ditch when he approached Corpse Corner while trying to lap backmarkers, attributed to a brakes failure. Brabham took over in front and maintained his lead for the remaining five laps to claim his fourth consecutive World Championship victory and eight points in the Drivers' Championship. He was the first to achieve four consecutive wins since Alberto Ascari in 1952. Surtees finished second in only his second event, with Ireland taking third. McLaren finished a lap behind in fourth, while the Ferraris of Hill and von Trips took the final points positions of fifth and sixth respectively. In the Drivers' Championship, Brabham now led McLaren with 32 points compared to 27. In the Constructors' Championship, Cooper was on 46 points, 21 ahead of Lotus.
1960 Portuguese Grand Prix
The 1960 Portuguese Grand Prix was the eighth race of the 1960 Formula One Season. Occurring on 14th August at the Circuito da Boavista, the race was ultimately won by Jack Brabham in a Cooper-Climax, his fifth consecutive World Championship victory. The win would also secure his second consecutive Drivers' Championship.
It was the third running of the event as part of the Formula One World Championship, lasting 55 laps. The ninth Portuguese Grand Prix overall, the event would be dropped from the calendar following this race. It would return to Formula One from 1984 to 1996, where it was held exclusively at the Circuito do Estoril. Finally, the race would be ran two more times from 2020-2021 at the Algarve International Circuit.
Heading into the race, Brabham led teammate Bruce McLaren 32 points to 27 in the Drivers' Championship. Thus, a win would guarantee him the Championship. Elsewhere, Stirling Moss returned to racing after recovering from the leg injuries sustained at the Belgian Grand Prix, competing in a Rob Walker-owned Lotus-Climax. However, despite initially experiencing gear selection issues that prevented him from setting times for much of qualifying, works Lotus-Climax driver John Surtees surprised onlookers by achieving pole position with a time of 2:25.56. BRM's Dan Gurney qualified in second, while Brabham was unable to improve on third as rain began to fall. Moss would start fourth, indicating he had not lost pace following his accident, while McLaren qualified sixth out of 16 competitors. BRP Cooper-Climax driver Henry Taylor was unable to compete after losing control as he approached the Avenue Boavista, crashing heavily and suffering an arm injury and damaged fingers. Lotus-Climax's Jim Clark also crashed heavily, but was able to start in eighth place once his car was repaired overnight.
With the starting order decided, the 1960 Portuguese Grand Prix commenced on 14th August. Gurney edged out Surtees as the field headed into the first corner, but it was Brabham that was in front after taking a wide sweep on the outside. However, Gurney out-braked the Cooper to regain it on the first lap, and Brabham then ran wide the following lap which caused him to drop to eighth. Moss passed Surtees for second on lap 1, but was re-passed by the works Lotus three laps later. By lap six, Gurney led by six seconds over Surtees. However, Gurney then slid on oil some laps later, and became concerned that it came from his BRM. Thus he slowed down to inspect the issue, eventually dropping down to sixth by lap 12. Moss also dropped out of contention after experiencing a misfiring from spark plugs, falling down to ninth after four pitstops to correct it. Now, Surtees led ahead of Ferrari's Phil Hill, with Brabham duelling the latter. On lap 26, Gurney retired following an engine failure, while Surtees led by ten seconds ahead of Hill, who was being pressurised by Brabham. The American then retired on lap 29 after missing a gear change, leading to him going wide and colliding with straw bales.
By lap 33, Surtees now led Brabham by 22 seconds, the latter deciding to ease off rather than challenge the Lotus. However, he then noticed that his front fuel tank had suffered a cracked seam and was now leaking petrol. As fuel dripped into the cockpit, Surtees ended up spinning his Lotus into the straw bales after his foot slipped off the brake pedal. While he initially continued, he retired a lap later following a broken radiator. Thus, Brabham assumed the lead, with teammate McLaren in second, while Clark climbed the order and was now third. On lap 51, Moss locked his brakes and stalled his engine on the escape road after initially hitting a straw bale. He pushed his car in order to restart it, but while he succeeded, he did so after pushing the Lotus against the race direction, leading to his disqualification.
Meanwhile, Brabham claimed his fifth consecutive World Championship victory, and his second consecutive Drivers' Championship. McLaren made it a works Cooper 1-2, while Clark took his first World Championship podium, surprising his team who assumed his Lotus would break after only a few laps. Ferrari's Wolfgang von Trips took fourth, BRP Cooper-Climax's Tony Brooks moved into fifth following Moss' disqualification, while Lotus-Climax's Innes Ireland claimed the final points position of sixth.
The 1960 Monaco Grand Prix would reportedly be partially televised live, including by the BBC, RAI, and ORTF. According to Issue 1,907 of Radio Times, the BBC would provide a dedicated 45-minute broadcast, in addition to showcasing the finish of the race alongside an international football match between Austria and Scotland. No television broadcast of the event has yet to resurface, but other footage can be found in documentaries and newsreels. In contrast, the 1960 French Grand Prix was televised partially live by RTF. Ultimately, the broadcast has yet to publicly resurface, although some footage of the race can be viewed in a British Pathé newsreel.
Meanwhile, the 1960 British Grand Prix was reportedly televised partially live by ITV, in what is the first known airing of a Formula One race by the British broadcaster. ITV would air around 50 races prior to 1981; it would gain a more prominent role in televising all Formula One races between 1997 to 2008. The broadcast has yet to resurface, however; analysis of what the ITV Sport Archive offers indicates that only highlights of the 1969 and 1970 British Grand Prix are in its collection. Additionally, a deal between ITV Sport and Racing Past Media in early-2022, which aimed to archive a "significant volume" of Formula One material from ITV, indicates that the earliest race broadcasts within the archive originate from the late-1960s. This therefore makes it unlikely the 1960 broadcast has survived. Nevertheless, footage of the race from documentaries and newsreels can be found online.
Finally, according to Issue 1,918 of Radio Times, the BBC provided highlights of the 1960 Portuguese Grand Prix on 17th August 1960 as part of Sportsview, with Moss being the segment's reporter. It is unclear how long the segment lasted, as the 30-minute Sportsview broadcast also contained a report on the 1960 Summer Olympics and highlights of the 1960 Charity Shield match between Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The broadcast has yet to resurface, but some footage of the race can be found in a History documentary.
