Héctor Alonso Rebaque (born 5 February 1956 in Mexico City[1]) is a former racing driver from Mexico. He participated in 58 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 5 June 1977. He scored a total of 13 championship points. He also ran his own unsuccessful Formula One team, Rebaque, in 1978 and 1979; usually he raced Lotuses but for the last three races in 1979 he fielded his own car designed by Penske which he called the HR100.

In the middle of 1980, he substituted for Ricardo Zunino as team mate to Nelson Piquet at Brabham, where he stayed throughout the 1981 season achieving his best Formula One results, finishing 10th in the Championship.

He also drove in the 1982 CART IndyCar season for Forsythe Racing including the 1982 Indianapolis 500 where he finished 13th after a pit fire on lap 151. He won his final CART race, which was the first one held at Road America. However, he was injured a week later in a testing crash at the Milwaukee Mile and decided to return to road racing as he felt oval racing was too dangerous.[2]

Helmet[edit]

Rebaque's helmet was black with a green, white and red design surrounding the visor area. The colours used are the colours of the Mexican flag.

Business[edit]

After his retirement from racing tracks Rebaque is dedicated to business related to architecture in Mexico.
