Introducing the 2014 Classic Formula One Calendar
In 1958, in the streets of Casablanca, Mike Hawthorn and Stirling Moss were the main players in the final race of the season to decide the new world champion. Moss won the race and Hawthorn took the title.
This was the beginning of the British Raj in Formula One motor racing.
Her Majesty’s motorsports island has produced more world champions than any other nation. Ten British drivers have taken the crown since the showdown in Casablanca. And they include some of the most legendary names in motor racing.
Graham Hill was the second British driver to become world champion in 1962, and again in 1968. He also won the Indy 500 in 1966 and the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1972.
Jim Clark was world champion in 1963, each and every race that season was won by a British driver. He repeated the feat two years later and also took victory at the Brickyard.
John Surtees is the only man to win world championships on two and four wheels.
Then came Jackie Stewart, James Hunt, Nigel Mansell, Damon Hill, Lewis Hamiton and Jenson Button.
“Rule Britannia” pays homage to grand prix greats from Great Britain.
