Jack Brabham

Triple world champion and F1 legend Sir Jack Brabham has died.

The Australian, who won the titles in 1959, 1960 and - uniquely whilst driving for his own team - 1966, died "peacefully" at his home on the Gold Coast at the age of 88 on Monday, his family said.

"He lived an incredible life, achieving more than anyone would ever dream of," said David Brabham, who raced for Brabham in 1990 and Simtek in 1994. Brabham's other sons, Geoff and Gary, also raced, as do grandsons Matthew and Sam.

"I'd like to pay tribute to one of the most illustrious names in motor racing history," said Ron Dennis, whose job working as a mechanic for Brabham in the late 60s was one of his first in F1.
