About Patrick Depailler


Patrick André Eugène Joseph Depailler (9 August 1944 - 1 August 1980) was a racing driver from France. He participated in 95 World Championship Formula One Grands Prix, debuting on 2 July 1972. He also participated in several non-Championship Formula One races. Depailler was born in Clermont-Ferrand. As a child, he was inspired by Jean Behra.
