Profile

Philippe won the French Formula Renault title in 1978, but Formula Three proved a harder nut to crack, for it took him four years before he up moved to Formula Two, before spending two years with the struggling RAM team in Formula One. He moved to Ligier during 1986, before joining the Larrousse Lola team, for whom he raced for three years, scoring points on four occasions. A return to Ligier in 1990 was fruitless and it curtailed his Formula One career. He bounced back with Larrousse in 1993 and scored his only fifth place, at Imola. Hopes of a grand prix swansong with McLaren in 1994 thanks to French engine supplier Peugeot were dashed when team boss Ron Dennis chose Martin Brundle instead, even though Philippe had a run-out in place of the suspended Mika Hakkinen in Hungary. After this, he raced touring cars and sports cars.
