Nasif Moisés Estéfano (18 November 1932 – 21 October 1973) was a racing driver from Argentina but with Lebanese ancestry [1]. He participated in two World Championship Formula One Grands Prix, debuting on 7 February 1960, but scored no championship points. He entered the 1962 Italian Grand Prix but failed to qualify. He was born in Concepción, Tucumán.

He died while driving in a local race in Aimogasta, La Rioja on 21 October 1973. His car suffered a mechanical failure on a fast curve, which caused the car to somersault a number of times. Estéfano was ejected from the car due to a fault with the safety belts, and was killed almost instantly due to head injuries.
