André Simon (born 5 January 1920 in Paris, died 11 July 2012 in Évian-les-Bains) was a racing driver from France. His career began in 1950, but he withdrew from what was to be his first race, having failed to submit his entry on time. He later drove for various teams, including for Johnny Claes, Motorsport Bleu, O.S.C.A., Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Voeckler and Gordini, usually without much success. 1952 was an exception to that rule, when Motorsport Bleu won the entrants' championship, helped by Simon's unexpected victory at Monaco. He later finished third in Belgium, but didn't score any other points for several years.
In 1956, Ecurie Voeckler struck a deal to enter a Gordini Type 56. This enabled them to bring Simon back near the front, and in 1957, his newfound pace allowed him to score two podiums and finish the year in sixth place.
