Jean Behra, a short, stout Frenchman hired by Ferrari for the 1959 season became paranoid and surly as he strained to meet Ferrari’s expectations. At 38, he had survived a dozen crashes. His body was laced with scars. A French magazine published a full-page photograph of him with a dense display of arrows identifying his broken bones. A collision three years earlier had torn off his right ear. Behra endured it all with a Gallic shrug. “Only those who do not move do not die,” he said. “But are they not already dead?” - Michael Cannell, The Limit.
