This young driver is looking pretty pleased with himself, having won yet another karting event en route to making the grade in F1. So just who is this motorsport prodigy?
Born in Italy, he would rocket through the junior ranks and land himself a test driver contract with Ferrari by his 20th birthday.
In a 67-race career, he drove for Dallara, Minardi, Ferrari, Footwork and Sauber between 1989 and 1997, while also going on to achieve enormous success in touring cars.
He holds the record of having scored the fewest points (aside from none at all) for Ferrari – half a point at the rain-shortened Australian Grand Prix in 1991.
So who is it? It’s Gianni Morbidelli, our very first interviewee on Richard’s F1!
