1992 Brabham BT60B Hill

The BT60 was the final Formula One car built for the Brabham Formula One motor racing team. It was the modification of the BT60Y designed by Sergio Rinland and Tim Densham in 1991. In 1992 the Yamaha OX99 V12 engine was replaced by Judd GV V10. The cars were driven by Eric van de Poele from Belgium and Italian rookie Giovanna Amati. After van de Poele qualified 26th and last and finished 13th at the opening race in South Africa, neither car qualified for a race until round nine. Giovanna Amati, 32 years old female driver who competed in F3000 in 1987 – 1991, was around 10 second slower than pole sitter in qualifying sessions of first  three rounds, and was replaced by Damon Hill after the Brazilian Grand Prix. Hill, another F1 rookie, future World Champion and son of 2-times World Champion Graham Hill, was able to get through qualifying two times – at Silverstone and at Hungaroring. He took 11th place in the Hungarian Grand Prix, the highest finish for Brabham drivers in 1992. It was the last ever race for Brabham.
