Lorenzo Bandini (December 21, 1935 - May 10, 1967) was an Italian Formula One driver who raced for Ferrari, Cooper and BRM. He was killed at the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix after his Ferrari overturned while in second place behind eventual champion Denny Hulme and burst into flames. Bandini died in hospital three days later.

In response to the accident, the straw bales were banned from Formula One from that point onwards.

He was born in Barce, Cyrenaica, Libya, then an Italian colony.

Bandini's claim to fame was being the first winner of the Austrian Grand Prix in 1964.

DeathEdit

On lap 81 of the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix, Bandini lost control of his car. The left rear wheel of the Ferrari struck the wall of the harbour chicane, sending the car skidding into a light pole. The car flipped and caught fire with Bandini trapped underneath.

Marshals rushed to the track to overturn the car. Bandini was rescued from the burning car unconscious. Shortly after he was removed from the car, there was a gasoline explosion.

Bandini was taken to a hospital with severe, third degree burns on over 70% of his body, a chest wound and 10 chest fractures. Doctors were required to wait for 24 to 48 hours to decide where to transport Bandini for treatment. Bandini died three days after the accident in the hospital.

After an investigation, the straw bales used in the event as walls were banned from Formula One.
