Former Formula One driver Tony Brooks, the ‘racing dentist’, dies aged 90

Brooks was one of the great British drivers of the 1950s and narrowly missed out on winning the F1 title in 1959. It was a remarkable feat, the first GP win for a British driver in a British car for 31 years and earned him the moniker of “the racing dentist”. He also proved himself in sports cars winning the Spa sports car GP and the Nürburgring 1000km in 1957. “I was saddened to hear the news that Tony Brooks has died,” he said.
