A likable and enormously versatile driver, Hobbs could turn his hand to anything from Formula 1 to sports cars and from touring cars to Indycars. His best Formula 1 result was seventh in the 1974 Austrian Grand Prix at the wheel of a Yardley McLaren M23 in which he was deputizing for the injured Mike Hailwood.
