Profile

French driver Andre Simon was born in Paris, the son of a garage owner. He drove for many top teams including Ferrari and Gordini from 1951 to 1957. His best result was sixth, which he achieved twice at the 1951 and 1952 Italian Grand Prix. In 1966 he survived a serious road accident, ironically only a few months after he had retired from competitive racing, which left him in a coma for two weeks.
