SALUTE TO SALVADORI: Roy Salvadori, a flamboyant star of the 1950's F1 racing scene, has died aged 90.

LONDON, England - Roy Salvadori, a Formula 1 driver who also won the 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours sports car race for Aston Martin with American sports car designer Carroll Shelby, has died at the age of 90.

The British Racing Drivers' Club said the Briton, a contemporary of Stirling Moss and Britain's first World champion Mike Hawthorn in GP racing in the 1950's, died on Sunday morning.


His best season in F1 was with Cooper in 1958, when he finished fourth overall behind compatriots Hawthorn, Moss and Tony Brooks and was second in the German GP and third in Britain.

His death and that of Shelby, designer of the Shelby Cobra and other sports cars, came just 23 days apart.
