Designed in 1961 by an old Alfa Romeo hand, Carlo Chiti, the Ferrari 156 was nicknamed as ‘sharknose’ because of presence of air-intake nostrils. The development of this 1476 cc 120° V6 engine car was done after F1 regulations changed with reduced engine displacement i.e. From earlier 2.5 litre to 1.5 litre.
First debuting at the Monaco GP, this car participated in several races including Nuerburgring and Circuit de Spa Francorchamps with drivers Giancarlo Baghetti, Wolfgang von Trips and Phil Hill behind it’s wheels.
In one season itself, this car won five of the eight races including one at the Spa with the first four positions.
This car driven by German Wolfgang von Trips after doing 15 laps came in 2nd position just 20 seconds behind the Lotus-Climax car driven by Sir Stirling Moss at the 1961 German Grand Prix.
