"Whenever I say that my friend Phil Hill was one of the most underrated drivers of his time, I get disbelief. "But he was the only native-born American to be world champion! He was one of the best endurance sports-car drivers ever. He won Le Mans, Sebring and Argentina three times each".
"All true, but I think Phil’s real greatness, like Wordsworth’s "flower by a mossy stone," was half hidden, obscured by circumstances and his own moderate assessment of himself."- Denise McCluggage

“I’m in the wrong business. I don’t want to beat anybody, I don’t want to be the big hero. I’m a peace-loving man, basically.”

The first world champion for the US, Phil Hill managed 3 wins and a championship, seemingly non-impressive in today’s standards yet this was at a time when the sport was a killer and only 8 races made up the season. His championship was disregarded by many saying he only won the championship after Wolfgang Von Trips death despite being more than a match for his teammate and a worthy challenger of Von Trips.
