FERRARI 158 F1

FERRARI 158 F1

HISTORY

The Ferrari 158 F1 was designed by the engineer Mauro Forghieri for the 1964 F1 World Championship. The project is inspired by the revolutionary Lotus 25 that dominated the 1963 world championship with Jim Clark. The structure of the monocoque was trussed in steel tubes, where aluminum panels were placed. The tanks of the Ferrari 158 F1 were sideways and in front of the driver’s seat, which allowed the reduction of the front section improving the distribution of the weights. For the engine the Ferrari abandoned the old V6 for a V8 of 1489 cc.

Under the leadership of John Surtees, the Ferrari 158 F1 won the F1 World Championships in 1964 and thanks to team-mate Lorenzo Bandini (winner of the Austrian Grand Prix), also the constructors’ championship. John Surtees got two victories in that year, in the Grand Prix of Germany and in the Italian Grand Prix, but thanks to the second place in the last race of the Grand Prix Mexico, he managed to overtake Graham Hill by one point.
John Surtees is the only driver to win both a F1 and a motorcycle world championship.
