Phil Hill started with Ferrari in 1956, he was driving sports cars, and quite successfully at that.
In 1959, he got his break in F1. In 1960, he won his first Formula 1 race, driving the 246 F1 at Monza. It happened to be the last front-engined F1 Ferrari win, too.
Of course, in 1961, he became Formula 1 World Driver Champion in a Ferrari 156 F1 "Sharknose".
A brilliant man, and brilliant racer.
