WATCH: Honouring the life of 1950s F1 ace Tony Brooks
The last surviving Formula 1 race winner from the 1950s, Charles Anthony Standish Brooks – better known as Tony Brooks – passed away on May 3, at the age of 90.
Widely regarded as one of F1's most naturally gifted drivers – Mario Andretti once famously described the Englishman as “the best of the best of the best” – Brooks was one of the leading racers of his era, winning 46% of the races he finished between the years 1956-1959.
In a career that totalled just 38 starts, Brooks came up against some of the greats of the sport, like Juan Manuel Fangio and Sir Stirling Moss – with Moss saying that Brooks would be one of the two drivers he'd pick if he were to create his dream F1 team.
