Past Gas #186: The Only American-Born F1 Champion

Past Gas #186: The Only American-Born F1 Champion

By Donut Media

This is Part 1 of our 2-part series on Phil Hill! Phil Hill spent his youth dreaming of driving foreign cars. He would read British race publications front to back. He grew to idolize the racers like Juan Manuel Fangio and Alberto Ascari and cars like Maseratis, Ferraris, and Triumphs. But for much of his life, it was just a dream. So how did the nervous son of a Postmaster and hymn composer become one of the most talented race car drivers of all time? Why did he leave racing near the peak of his career? What unfortunate event led to him winning a world championship? Today on Past Gas: part one of the story of Phil Hill and the 1961 Formula 1 season. You asked for it -- and we listened.
