John Michael Hawthorn was, in 1958, the first British driver to win a world championship. During his career, he won 3 gp and scored 18 podiums in total. He also won the "Le Mans 24 Hours" Race In 1955 during which, after a hazardous maneuver entering the pit to refuel, he caused the most famous, and the worst, most tragic accident in motorsport history. Eighty-four spectators died together with the Mercedes Driver Pierre Levegh. after this accident, and out of respect for those that perished, Mercedes withdrew from all remaining races that year. In 1959, 3 months after his retirement at age 29, Hawthorn died in a car accident while driving his jaguar 3.4mk1. A possible cause of the accident was that he suffered a blackout due to failure of his infected kidney. At the time of the accident, he was not expected to live more than 3 years.
