french racing driver

Happy Birthday to Albert François Cevert Goldenberg, usually known simply as François Cevert, who would have been 70 years old today.

Epitomising the French motor racing scene in the early 1970s, François was everything you’d expect a French racing driver to be - glamorous, ridiculously handsome, quick and skilful. He possessed a zest for life, a positive attitude, a charm, and a perhaps unexpected determination to learn and work hard that made him a thorough favourite in F1 both during his life and since his death.

Happy Birthday, François.
