Silvio Moser (born in Zürich, 24 April 1941 – died in Locarno, 26 May 1974)[1] was a racing driver from Switzerland.

Early life and career[edit]

Moser began his career in the early sixties, racing Alfa Romeos and moved to single seaters in 1964,[2] with a good deal of success both in European Formula three and the Temporada Series.[2]

Formula One[edit]

Having built a strong reputation in Formula Junior/Three, Formula Two and sports car racing Moser debuted in Formula One on 15 July 1967 at the British Grand Prix[2] with a Vögele Team Cooper-ATS. Prior to this he had attempted to qualify for the German Grand Prix in 1966 with a Formula 2 BrabhamCosworth BT16, entered in his own name, but the engine failed in practice.[2] He continued in 1968 with a Brabham-Repco BT20, in 1969 in a privately entered Brabham BT24 Cosworth,[3] in 1970 with the Bellasi-Cosworth and again for one race in 1971. In total, he participated in 19 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix (12 starts), scoring a total of three championship points.

Post Formula One and death[edit]

After the failure of the Bellasi project[2] Moser returned to Formula Two and drove a Brabham in 1971 and 1972, and a Surtees in 1973, with limited success, but managed second place at Monza in the Lottery GP.[2]

Moser died from severe injuries without regaining consciousness, some time after being involved in an accident while driving his Lola-BMW in the 1,000 km sports car race at Monza.[3]
