Onofre Agustín Marimón (born December 19 1923 in Buenos Aires, Argentina – died July 31 1954 at Nürburgring, Germany) was an Argentine racing driver who competed in F1 from 1951 until his death during practice for the 1954 German Grand Prix. Driving for Maserati throughout his career, Marimón started 11 races, scoring two 3rd place finishes and scored 8 1⁄7 points (the seventh of a point coming from sharing the fastest lap with six other drivers at his final race start, the 1954 British Grand Prix).
Formula One Career
Before Formula One
Marimón was killed during a practice session for the 1954 German Grand Prix.
While traveling on a downward section of the track, he failed to turn on the sharp turn at the bottom of the incline. His car left the track and became airborne after striking a ditch. The car was then sent into a barrel roll after striking a tree.
The car landed upside-down, with Marimón trapped underneath. Marimón died track-side, shortly after being freed from the wreckage.
