He made his way in Formula One driving a Porsche 718 for Ecurie Nationale Suisse at two non-championship races in 1962. He joined the Ecurie Filipinetti team and continued racing non-championship events with them. He was set to make his championship debut at the 1962 Belgian Grand Prix with the Dutch Ecurie Maarsbergen team, but was withdrawn prior to qualifying.

He made is only championship appearance with Ecurie Filipinetti at the 1962 German Grand Prix driving a Lotus 24, but his race lasted only four laps due to an oil pressure issue.

The following year, still with Ecurie Filipinetti, he came in 3rd in the non-championship 1963 Pau Grand Prix from 10th on the grid. Despite his success, that was his only Formula One appearance that year, as he returned to sport car racing.
