François Migault (4 December 1944 – 29 January 2012) was a racing driver from Le Mans, France.[1] He participated in 16 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 13 August 1972, but scored no championship points.

Life[edit]

A native of Le Mans, he also entered the 24 Hours of Le Mans race 25 times, between 1972 and 2002.

Migault's first attempt in Formula One in 1972 was with the small, underfunded Connew team that managed to start in only one race. In 1974, he drove almost a complete season with British Racing Motors after both BRM drivers of 1973, Niki Lauda and Clay Regazzoni, had moved to Ferrari.

In 1975, a few races with the ill-fated Embassy Hill team and Williams followed. In Formula Two that year, Migault achieved some success with an Osella FA2, scoring one point.

Migault continued to compete at Le Mans until he was in his mid-fifties and achieved a best finish of second in 1976, together with two other podium finishes.[2]

Migault died on 29 January 2012 after a long battle with cancer.[3]
