Tony brooks cause of death
He was a racing driver who won six Formula 1 Grand Prix races in the 1950s and 1960. He died this week, at the age of 90.
A lot of people called him the “Racing Dentist.” Even though he won six races, he never won the world championship. Our thoughts go out to his family.
Brooks competed in 39 F1 races and finished second in the world drivers’ championship with Ferrari in 1959. The year before, he finished third with Vanwall.
Brooks was born in Dukinfield, Cheshire, in 1932. He went to school to become a dentist like his father. During his six-year F1 career, Brooks won three pole positions and 10 podiums.
In a statement, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said he was “saddened” to hear that Tony Brooks had died. “He was a great friend and a great driver. I will miss him.”
“He was part of a group of drivers who were pioneers and took risks at a time when there was a lot of danger.”
His family is in our thoughts at this time.
Sir Stirling Moss died in 2020, and Brooks was the last Grand Prix winner from the 1950s that was still alive when he died. He was called the “Racing Dentist.”
In a tweet, the Goodwood Revival said that Tony Brooks, the last surviving Grand Prix winner from the 1950s, had died.
