One-time F1 driver Bertil Roos is turning 67 today.
The Swede contested a single Formula 1 Grand Prix, his home event in 1974, at the wheel of a Shadow DN3 where he retired with transmission failure. Sadly for Roos, he failed to gel with the team management and his services were dispensed with in favour of Tom Pryce.
The Gothenburg-born driver achieved success in the US Formula Super Vee, Canadian Formula Arlantic and European Formula 2 championships, and he returned Stateside after his all-too-brief shot at F1.
Roos now runs a highly successful racing school in the United States.
