Siegfried Stohr (born 10 October 1952) is a former racing driver from Italy. He participated in 13 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 15 March 1981. He scored no championship points.

Biography

Stohr started in the Italian Formula Italia class in 1976 finishing second in the championship.[1] In 1977 he won the series.[2] Stohr won the Italian Formula Three Championship in 1978 driving a Chevron[3] and progressed to Formula two for 1979 where he took second places at Vallelunga and Pau, with a Chevron before switching with less success to a March.[3] For 1980 he joined Alan Docking Racing, driving a Toleman, and finished fourth in the championship with one win, at Enna.[3]

Stohr joined Arrows for the 1981 Formula One season, as teammate to Riccardo Patrese. Patrese proved considerably faster than Stohr, who struggled in his first few races. Just as Stohr began to improve, he was involved in a start-line accident at the 1981 Belgian Grand Prix; after Patrese had stalled his engine, his mechanic Dave Luckett ran onto the grid to try to restart it, expecting the start to be aborted. But it went ahead, and Stohr crashed into the back of Patrese's car, seriously injuring Luckett.[4] Stohr's confidence was badly affected by the accident and his performance throughout the rest of the season deteriorated, along with that of his team, relative to their rivals. Stohr retired before the end of the season after crashing out of qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix.

After Formula One, Stohr made a short lived comeback in the Italian Superturismo Championship in 1989 driving a BMW M3.[5]

A psychology graduate at the University of Padua, Stohr started a racing school and safe driving academy at the Misano circuit in 1982.[6] In the 1990s he became a regular columnist for the Italian motorsport weekly Autosprint. He also wrote columns about driving safety in several publications.
