The French driver Jean-Pierre Jarrier complete 66 years this July 10, 2012. Born in Charenton, debuted in March in 1971 by the motor racing in F2. His debut took place in the F1 GP of Italy after a failed attempt to qualify for the GP of France, always with a March 701. In his first 1973 race season. In 1974, his first podium (Monaco) in 1975 and the first pole (Argentina). Always very fast, unfortunately, results in F1 do not match the grandeur of his talent. Throughout his career defended the teams March, Shadow, ATS, Lotus, Tyrrell, Ligier and Osella. His last pole came in 1978 (Canada). Took the podium for the last time in 1979 (England). He ended his participation in F1 in 1983 (South Africa). 136 GPs were played in 13 years in the category. Outside it, he collected some victories in the world of sports cars.
Jarier HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
