Having finished world title runner-up an agonising four times in the 1950s, Moss switched to Rob Walker Lotus for the first time at the start of the 1960 season and won his first race behind the wheel of the Lotus 18 at Monaco.
A fourth-place finish in Holland followed, but he was then badly injured after a huge accident at the Burnenville Sweep in an event that also saw Mike Taylor’s career ended after a crash and Chris Bristow and Alan Stacey tragically killed during the race. Moss missed three races but returned to win the season-ending U.S. Grand Prix.
He again began the 1961 season with another victory at Monaco and would win again at a wet Germany against the might of the new “sharknose” Ferrari 156 cars. Four retirements meant he had to settle for third in the championship. He would retire from competitive racing after a heavy crash at Goodwood.
American Richie Ginther just misses out on the top 10 but was a mainstay of the '60s, his Formula 1 career spanning eight seasons.
Ginther made his F1 debut for Ferrari and stayed there for two seasons, achieving a second-place finish at Monza and Monaco and further podiums at Spa and Silverstone.
Three seasons driving a BRM for Owen followed and although Ginther managed six second places and three third places against the might of Graham Hill, Jim Clark and John Surtees, that elusive first win evaded him.
It finally came in the final race of the 1965 season in Mexico, when he secured Honda’s first Grand Prix victory and the only win for a non-British driver that season.
