Jump to: navigation, search

André Simon (born 5 January 1920 in Paris) is a retired racing driver from France. His career began in 1950, but he withdrew from what was to be his first race. He competed in 15 more GPs, starting 11, driving for teams such as Gordini, Ferrari, Maserati and Mercedes-Benz. Sadly, when his car was quick, he was usually hit by mechanical problems, and his best results were two sixth places, not yet worth points.
