Henri was carried into Formula One by Matra on the strength of strong Formula Three, Formula Two and sports car performances, but not before his career had suffered a major setback when a crash at Le Mans in 1969 left him with severe burns. Nevertheless, fully recovered, Henri was drafted into the Matra Formula One team in 1970, and took an excellent third place at Monaco, followed by a fourth place at Silverstone in Frank Williams' March in 1971. Henri dropped out of Formula One and only returned occasionally, before committing to sports car racing full-time at the end of 1976, notching up the fourth of his wins in the 1984 Le Mans 24 Hours. He continues to run one of Europe's leading sports car teams, always fielding young French drivers, and is still a fixture in the pits at Le Mans.
