‘Always missed, never forgotten.’

François Cevert was a French racing driver born in Paris, who competed in 47 Formula One Grand Prix for the ELF Team Tyrrell, achieving one win, 13 podium finishes and 89 career points.

He was a fantastic character, loved by everyone in the paddock.

Sadly, he was killed on the 6th of October 1973, during practice for the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, where he had won just two years earlier.
