This week marks 60 years since Graham Hill took the first of his five victories in Monaco across a trophy-filled F1 career. To mark the occasion, we look back at that sequence of wins during the 1960s and how he earned the title of ‘Mr Monaco’ alongside his two world titles…

1963 – Hill’s breakthrough Monaco win

Hill had been on course to chalk up a maiden Monaco Grand Prix victory in 1962, hauling his BRM past Cooper rival Bruce McLaren early on and leading most of the then 100-lap encounter until an engine failure inside the final 10 tours – handing back the advantage, and victory, to the New Zealander.
