Profile

Manfred was backed by BMW as he rose racing's ladder. He spent most of his Formula One career with ATS and RAM, rarely enjoying the chance to shine, but his reflexes and bravery were used to good effect at the Detroit Grand Prix in 1982, when he qualified fifth. A good drive in a Porsche sports car provided him with some welcome success, but he was killed in an accident at the Mosport Park 1,000km race in 1985.
