    [About the Ferrari 156 SHARK NOSE]
    The Ferrari 156 was a F1 Ferrari machine used between the years of 1961 to 1964. In order to comply to new regulations at the time regarding reduction of engine displacement from 2.5L to 1.5L, the 156 was designed to run with a 1.5L V6 Dino engine. While it initially ran with a 65-degree engine, it was eventually replaced with a 120-degree type that feature higher power output and a lower centre of gravity. One of the most distinct features of the 156 was the two large front intake cut-outs at the nose, earning it the nickname Shark Nose based on its outer appearance.
    Having adapted well to the change in regulation, the 156 saw 5 victories out of 8 races in the year of 1961, with Ferrari claiming both constructors and drivers titles for the year. The end of the season presented a fierce battle for the driver title between Ferrari teammates P. Hill and W. Von Trips, however Von Trips suffered a fatal accident during the Italian GP when his Ferrari crashed into the spectators area. The tragedy left Hill with no other rival for the driver title and allowed him to claim the championship for the year of 1961. From 1962 to 1964 various modifications was done to the 156 to make it more competitive, including scraping the distinctive shark nose design for a more conventional intake. However none of these changes posed a threat to the rivalling British teams who took the championships for those years. Ferrari would not see victory until the appearance of the 156??s successor (the 158 ?C which ran on a V8 engine) came in the later half of the 1964 season.
