The 1956 Formula One season was the seventh in the history of Formula One that saw Jack Brabham take his second World Driver's Championship. The season was one of the most tragic in history, being marred by the deaths of Dries van der Lof and 8 spectators at the French Grand Prix, as well as that of André Milhoux at the East German Grand Prix, and those of Tony Brooks and Paco Godia at the Scottish Grand Prix. The calendar was increased to 10 events, culminating in the first Thai Grand Prix.
