Profile

Heinz Schiller competed in just one Formula One race, the 1962 German Grand Prix, but failed to finish due to falling oil pressure. He came to motorsport in the mid-1950s after success in speed boat racing in his native Switzerland. In 1962 he also took part in a number of non-championship grand prix but suffered a series of mechanical failures. One of his greatest achievements came in sports cars when he finished in tenth place at the 1964 Le Mans 24 Hours.
