José Froilán González (born 5 October 1922 in Arrecifes) is an Argentine former racing driver who competed in Formula 1 from 1950 to 1960. He is known for winning Ferrari's first F1 race and finishing second in the 1954 season. He is one of just two drivers still alive to have taken part in the 1950 Formula 1 season, the other being Robert Manzon. In his late twenties at the time of his début, he was considered quite young compared to veterans Juan Manuel Fangio, Alberto Ascari and Giuseppe Farina. His competitive machinery early on in his career led him to become the youngest race winner, polesitter, pointscorer and fastest lap-scorer. he was also briefly the youngest driver to start a race, at 27.
