Antonio Creus was a Spanish motorbike racer turned sports car driver who decided to add a Formula 1 World Championship round to his career and therefore entered an elderly Maserati 250F for the 1960 Argentine Grand Prix. He qualified last, nearly 16 seconds off the pace of pole-setter Stirling Moss. In the race he was forced to retire after just one fifth of the distance as the smoldering heat had completely drained him physically within only 16 laps.
