was born October 30, 1906 in Turin, Italy.
Nino Farina The first ever
Formula One World Champion came from a privileged background and had a stylish driving technique that was adopted by
many drivers. A hard and determined racer, Farina relied on a combination of profound self belief and raw courage to
compensate for the superior skills possessed by many of his more naturally talented opponents. Yet he also drove
recklessly and few Formula One drivers ever competed with such apparent disregard for their personal safety. Somehow
surviving an accident-strewn racing career, he was eventually killed in a road accident.
