A pre-season testing crash in 1989 left him a quadriplegic and thus using a wheelchair, with the quality of the care he received in the aftermath having been called into question,[1] even if the accident itself was so serious the roll-bar broke on impact.[2]

He organised the Masters Karting Paris Bercy.

In early 1994, Streiff made a bid to purchase Ligier in partnership with Hughes de Chaunac[3]. The bid had the support of the similarly Renault-powered Williams F1 team, who intended to turn Ligier into a 'junior' team. The bid was unsuccessful.

Belgian Luc Costermans, who had broken the World blind road speed record in late 2008, dedicated his record to Streiff.[4][5]
