Profile

The son of pre-war ace Hans Stuck, Hans Jr's natural talent rarely seemed to find full expression in Formula One. Already a touring car ace when he made his grand prix debut in 1974 with March, Hans Jr proved somewhat inconsistent in the following three years. When Carlos Pace was killed early in 1977, Hans replaced him in the Brabham line-up, and scored superb third places at the German and Austrian Grands Prix.

He proceeded to lead the end-of-season US Grand Prix only to slide off in the soaking conditions. Hans drove for Shadow in 1978 and ATS in 1979, but rarely featured prominently, before moving to a very successful career in sports cars, which included winning the 1985 world title and the Le Mans 24 Hours in both 1986 and 1987, all with Porsche partner Derek Bell. Since then, Hans won the German touring car title with Audi in 1990.
