[edit] Season summary

Jim Clark won his first championship with seven wins to two by Graham Hill and one by John Surtees in a revised Ferrari. The ATS venture, founded by ex-Ferrari workers, a complete disaster which ruined Phil Hill's grand prix career, was unrelated to the late 1970s German operation which was marginally more successful.
