That’s Reine Wisell on the left of Jo Bonnier at Sebring in 1972, but I don’t know who that is on the right — any clue?

It’s Gerard Larrousse. The three of them were teammates that year at Sebring. And anyway, I’d know that profile anywhere!

❝Jo Bonnier had the impeccable manners of a true gentleman, formal yet with an almost alarming tendency to speak directly. That was countered by an extraordinary charm. Such qualities made him an extremely effective Chairman of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association from 1963 to 1971. He campaigned tirelessly for improved track safety – right up to his shocking death in that 180mph accident in 1972. It was a terrible loss.❞
