Michel Leclère, posing with Carlos Ghys.
Winner of the 1973 French Formula 3 Championship, Leclere consolidated his reputation with some strong showings in Formula 2 before driving a third Tyrrell at Watkins Glen in 1975.
He got his full-time Formula 1 break with Walter Wolf Racing at the start of the following year when the team's fortunes were at their lowest ebb.
His career never recovered.
