He has been a television commentator in America for nearly 40 years, bringing wit and wisdom to the screen, latterly as part of NBC's Formula 1 team and NBC Sports Network.
In 1969 Hobbs was included in the FIA list of graded drivers, an elite group of 27 drivers who by their achievements were rated the best in the world.
He is the owner of a Honda car dealership in Wisconsin.
Hobbs was due to make his F1 Grand Prix debut for Tim Parnell Racing at the 1965 French Grand Prix at Clermont-Ferrand, but a serious road accident put him in hospital for three weeks
