There is an ongoing debate over the fate of Formula 1 driver Ronnie Peterson’s grave in Sweden. A recent vandalism attack has caused damage to the grave of the former champion. It is unclear who is responsible for the act of vandalism, but it is believed that it took place sometime between Saturday and Sunday. The stones on three of the deceased’s tombs were knocked over. According to Brita Wennsten, the ward shepherd of Almby, the grave of Ronnie Peterson was not picked at random.
Ronnie Peterson was almost a foot taller than Mario Andretti, but his overalls appeared to be the same size. Then, when Jacques Villeneuve started wearing baggy overalls, Peterson was also able to do so. He then made Tel Aviv his permanent home and pursued other projects, such as being a solo artist. He also worked with the “who’s who” of Israeli rock and pop stars.
Although he was born in Nuremberg, Germany, Peterson was raised by his German mother and American military father. His mother committed suicide after the death of her husband. Peterson worked as a recording artist and professional blues guitarist. He is buried in a Catholic cemetery in Jaffa, which is close to his birthplace.
In 1987, Peterson’s wife, Barbro, committed suicide. He was buried beside her next to her. Barbro Peterson, who was an influential model, married Ronnie in 1975. The couple had a daughter together, named Nina Louise. Barbro died of suicide in 1987, but her husband was buried next to her in the family cemetery.
