Jo Siffert Biography


Jo Siffert 1969 Italian F1 GP

Jo Siffert in the Lotus during the 1969 Italian F1 GP

Jo Siffert was a Swiss racing driver who is fondly remembered for his brilliant performances in Formula One in the 1960s and 1970s. He was born on July 7, 1936, in Fribourg, Switzerland, and grew up with a passion for motorsports. Siffert began his racing career in 1952, and by 1960, he had made his debut in Formula One.

Siffert's F1 career started slowly as he struggled to make an impact with his first team, Swiss Racing Team. However, in 1962, he moved to Rob Walker Racing, where he secured his first F1 win at the 1963 British Grand Prix. Siffert continued to excel in F1, winning two more races in 1968 and finishing on the podium multiple times.

His greatest success in F1 came in the 1971 season when he joined BRM. He won the Austrian Grand Prix that year, and his consistent performances earned him a second-place finish in the championship, behind Jackie Stewart.

Siffert was a fearless driver who was known for his spectacular driving style. He was not afraid to take risks and was always pushing the limits. His performance in the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours race, where he battled with Steve McQueen's Porsche, is still talked about today.

Siffert's life came to a tragic end on October 24, 1971, during a non-championship race in Brands Hatch, England. He was involved in a fatal crash, and despite the best efforts of the medical team, he could not be saved. Siffert was only 35 years old at the time of his death.

Jo Siffert was a true racing legend, and his contribution to the sport is still celebrated today. He was known for his talent, his bravery, and his sportsmanship. Siffert was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2007, and his legacy will continue to inspire generations of motorsports fans for years to come.
