Can anybody help me identify the man on the photo?

An young man from our forum asked me the same question but my efforts were fruitless. I'd like to help the guy who's disabled in a wheelchair but deeply interested in F1.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Thank you very much guys!!! :clap:
I knew TNF is the right place to ask. Now, knowing the name, a lot is coming out of Google and Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Jo_Siffert.

P.S. I was only 14 in 1971. And didn't even know F1 existed. :)
