About the racing driver Ronnie Peterson

Ronnie Peterson, the “Super Swede” as he was called by the press and friends, started his career in kart racing. Peterson, who was born in Almby, Sweden, on February 14, 1944, could win a lot of kart races, including two swedish national championships in 1963 and 1964 and started racing in the Formula 3 in 1969. In the same year he won the Formula 3 European championship and moved on to the Formula 1.

From 1969 to 1972 he had a 3year contract with the March team, changed to Lotus and in 1976 he drove one year for the Tyrell team and changed back in 1978 to Lotus. During his overall Formula One career, he scored 10 Grand Prix victories and finished the World championship as a runner-up twice. At the Grand Prix in Monza, an accident occured that initially did’nt seem to be life-threatening. After the x-rays at the hospital of Milan several fractures were discovered, after which Peterson was transferred to the intensive care unit. At night, his condition worsened and on the morning of September 11, 1978, he was pronounced dead. Official cause of death was a fat embolism. The continued race in Monza won his friend and teammate Mario Andretti. In retrospect, Mario Andretti dedicated the victory to Ronnie Peterson.
