1962 BRM P57 Hill

The P57 was used in two first seasons of 1.5-liter Formula 1. Designed by Tony Rudd, P57 in 1961 (referred as P48/57) was powered by custom Coventry-Climax Straight 4 engine while own BRM 1.5-lirtre motor was still in development. For 1962 new BRM V8 producing 190 horsepower was ready, while  tubular spaceframe and suspension remained unchanged. The new car proved to be very competitive. Owen Racing Organization drivers for 1961 were Gram Hill and Richie Ginther. Hill started the season with the victory in Monaco, and continued at the high note winning three more rounds (in Germany, Italy and South Africa) and secured his first Driver’s title, as well as the Constructor’s Championship for BRM. Richie Ginther was not able to win, but scored two podiums – in French and Italian Grand Prix and was 8th in the championship.
