 8W - Who - Graham Hill
Graham Hill was the face of motor racing in Britain in the 1960s — extrovert, fun-loving, dashing, rakish, moustachioed and handsome he was the public's idea of what a racing driver should look like.
Graham then took a splendid victory in Germany after a race-long battle in the rain with Surtees and Gurney and BRM went on to an emphatic 1-2 in the Italian race, Hill winning by half a minute from Ginther, who in turn was almost half a minute ahead of the rest of the field.
Graham had lingered too long as a driver in Formula 1 and the poignant sight of him failing to qualify at Monaco brought tears to the eyes of even the most hard-bitten enthusiasts — his announcement of retirement was greeted with relief by all.
