The TOP 10 Formula One drivers of the 1960s

34 730 Näkymät

There is a constant debate over who the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time is. It's an endless argument which really can't be settled. Instead, we pose the question "Who were the best drivers of the decade?". In the second episode of this new series, we find out who the best drivers of each decade were, starting with the 1960s.
Thanks to Mike from F1 Fanatics for joining on this episode!

  • We also have to look at with Jim Clark is 1963 performance at the Spa where it was pouring rain at old Spa which was probably the most dangerous track on earth aside from the Nürburgring he lapped the entire field apart from second place with a car that had its gearbox start to go wonky throughout the race and he still won by almost 5 minutes I’m sorry no one can top that

  • #1 Driver Ever - Jim Clark. During his F1 career, he would still race in other types of motor races around the world each year, winning those races also. His pole and win percentage, in anything with 4 wheels, in any kind of racing, puts him head and shoulders ahead of everybody.

  • in my opinion if there ever has to be an oficial best f1 driver of all time it has got to be somone who raced in the 60/70s or 80s i mean just keeping those cars on the track at a resonable speed proofs the talent and sheer will strenght of those drivers and im also certain that many drivers on the current grid wouldnt even dare to drive those cars at such speeds

    DealorDealor5 kuukautta sitten
  • Being a Scot myself I am biased, but Clark is the greatest driver of all time. My favourite stat (from f1metrics) about Clark is that in a streak between 1963 and 1965 he entered 29 races, 13 times he had mechanical problems that slowed him or caused a DNF. The other 16 races? He won. All of them. In that period he also outscored the rest of the Lotus work team 159 points to 29. I also personally think that, of all the legends of that era, he and Jackie Stewart would have adjusted best to the modern cars with their driving styles and dedication to the sport. What a legend.

  • Clark was unbeatable. If the car didn't break down or was Williams level shit, he won. And then there are these urban legends surrounding him. Tyres lasting four weekends, engines and gearboxes more or less pristine after the races. I don't know if they are true or not. And the way he died. Noone saw it. I like to think of it as God returning his son to the heavens. He did stuff that not even the likes of Hill, Brabham, Steward or Surtees had a clue of how he did it.

  • Jochen Rindt was born on 18 April 1942 in Mainz, Germany, to an Austrian mother and German father. His mother had been a successful tennis player in her youth and, like her father, studied law. Rindt's parents owned a spice mill in Mainz, which he later inherited. They were killed in a bombing raid in Hamburg during the Second World War when he was one year old, after which he was raised by his grandparents in Graz, Austria. Although his grandfather chose to retain Rindt's German citizenship, for his entire career he drove under an Austrian racing licence. In an interview, he described his heritage as a "terrible mixture" and, when asked if he felt more Austrian or German, said that he felt "like a European" I think you have to respect his Austrian heritage. He truly lived in Austria thanks to his grandparents since his parents were killed in the war. He answered the question about as diplomatically as can be given the Germanic sense of shame over what happened with the Second World War. Like most of the drivers that came to an untimely end, it was such a crying shame he died the way he did and even more so that he couldn't celebrate his driver's title. Remember seeing his girlfriend's sullen face behind the sunglasses and thinking it was extremely heartbreaking.

  • You had them in more or less the right order. Dan Gurney was in many ways like Stirling Moss. Good in everything and never able to achieve what he should have often by being in inferior equipment. But the gold standard for this era was Clark. When he went to Indy, and showed them how magical he was odd the hop, he showed America just how good he was. And I know that if Chapman just made things a smidge more durable, Clark might have won a few more WDC's. Class, speed, magic. The GOAT

  • there's a story I had heard about Jim Clark once, no idea if it's true as I'm not even sure about where I got it from: his engineers (or whatever) were right next to a corner, watching him go around the track. When he reached their corner, to their great surprise, his car made practically no sound! Afterwards, they asked him what that was about. He answered that, to save the engine (I think?), he'd turn off the engine on entry and restart it while exiting. No idea if that story is true or not, but it's great to tell. but otherwise, let me put something else into perspective: if you didn't think his winning percentage was insane enough, remember that he drove for Lotus, a team who's cars were notoriously unreliable. As such, Jim Clark (and Lotus as a whole) had the reputation of either winning or not finishing the race. If you exclude all of Jim Clark's 23 retirements (not sure how many were due to mechanical failure, but I believe most were), then you're left with 50 entries in F1 (if you include his one DNS), of which he won 25 races. That's a perfect 50% winning percentage! Here's his racing record in more detail: 73 entries, 1 DNS, 23 retirements, 17 non-podium finishes (8 points finishes and 9 finishes out of the points) and 32 podiums (25 wins, 1 second place and 6 third places) if you don't think that's incredible enough, he's the only driver in history with more grand slams than Lewis Hamilton (8 vs 6) (a grand slam is when a driver takes pole, wins the race, gets a fastest lap and leads every lap of the race). He holds the record (tied with Alberto Ascari) for the highest percentage of possible championship points earned in a season with 100% (here's the thing: back in the day, your total championship tally only counted your 6 best results, so as long as you had 6 wins, you had all the points you could score in a season. Clark and Ascari, as far as I know, are the only ones to have achieved this). Clark also holds the record for the highest percentage of laps led during a season, with 71.47% in the 1963 season! btw, that 1963 season was insane. Out of 10 races, he got 7 wins, one second place finish, one third place finish and one 8th place finish. yeah, he finished on the podium in 9 out of 10 races! I mean it's not a record, but it's still insane! so yeah, Jim Clark was pretty ungodly good

    • He also had the reputation for being incredibly nice to the car and it's components, wearing them down less than his teammates (probably part of the reason he was able to be so strong in cars that were unreliable and to some, dangerous) but it was to the point where people claim you could take his and his teammates cars apart and you could tell which parts came from Clark's by just looking

    • Istria was part of the Kingdom of Italy between 1919 & 1947 (hence Mario was born in Italy), in 1947 Yugoslavia took control until the break up of Yugoslavia in 1991. At this point Istria was divided up between Croatia and Slovenia. So the basic answer is, he was born in Italy but the place where he was born is now part of Croatia.

Stewart in particular is worth mentioning, he retired at the age of 31 while still having the capability of grabbing multiple more championships, as he was in one of the fastest and calmest teams in terms of tension.
