The heart of the French ex-Formula 1 driver Philippe Streiff stopped beating at the age of 68.
Streiff won 53 F1 Grands Prix with Renault, Ligier, Tyrell and AGS from 1984 to 1988. Philippe Streiff’s third place at the 1985 Australian Grand Prix is his only F1 podium finish. The Frenchman also won the 1981 24 Hours of Le Mans in his class.
In the 1989 pre-season testing, Streiff was involved in a serious accident. In it, he injured his spine, because of which he was chained to a wheelchair. After completing his racing career, Philip was involved in the organization of karting competitions.
