Georges 'Johnny' Servoz-Gavin was a handsome, blond playboy racer who loved the good life, but significantly he also possessed a great deal of talent.

After being thrown out of the Winfield driving school in 1963, 'Johnny' did a little rallying in 1964, before spending all his money on a Brabham for 1965. He was wild but fast, taking fourth place in the French F3 series to earn a drive with Matra in 1966. Although he was promoted to the Matra Formula 2 team for 1967, his results were moderate, and only a splendid fourth in the F1/F2 non-title Spanish GP kept him on board.

An accident to Jackie Stewart early in 1968 brought the Frenchman a glorious opportunity to show his ability. In Ken Tyrrell's Matra he sensationally led the Monaco GP, but clipped a barrier which broke a driveshaft. Later in the season he redeemed himself with a superb second place in the Italian GP, but he still lacked a full-time Grand Prix ride.

For 1969 he concentrated on the European F2 championship, and with victory in the Rome GP took the title of top non-graded driver. In Grands Prix, he was mainly entrusted with the Matra MS84, and succeeded in gaining a point with it at Mosport, the only time any 4WD car achieved this feat.

The following season, 'Johnny' was paired with Jackie Stewart in the Tyrrell team, running the difficult March 701. He finished fifth in the Spanish GP, but failed to qualify at Monaco, which caused him suddenly to announce his retirement.

Ultimately he had decided that the risks inherent in racing at the time were not worthwhile, but there was also, apparently, a problem with his vision, which may have been the deciding factor.
