Tony Brooks, one of the defining Formula 1 drivers of the 1950s and driver of the P48 for BRM in the late 1950s and early 1960s, has died aged 90.

Brooks, who had been the last surviving F1 race winner of the 1950s, left a considerable mark on the sport – between 1956 and 1959, he won 46% of the races he finished, in an era when mechanical reliability was a significant feature in motorsport.

BRM sends their condolences to his family at this time, and thank Brooks for the remarkable legacy that he has left on the world of motorsport.
