Wolfgang von Trips was born to a wealthy family in West Germany in 1928. His first Formula One race was the British Grand Prix in 1956 with Ferrari and he had a series of successes including 2 wins and six podium finishes over the next five years. He was racing in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in 1961 and only needed to finish third to win the World Championship when he crashed at high speed causing his car to become airborne and crash into a crowd of spectators. Von Trips was thrown from the car and he and 15 spectators were killed in the accident.
