Formula 3


Morbidelli was Italian Formula 3 and Formula 3 European Cup champion in 1989.

Formula 3000


After doing the first 2 races of the 1990 Formula One season F1 season for Dallara, Morbidelli concentrated on International Formula 3000. He won 1 race and finished 5th in the 1990 championship. He also was the test driver for Ferrari that year [2].

Formula One


Once the 1990 Formula One season season had finished, Morbidelli did the final two races of the F1 season with Minardi, where he remained until the end of 1992 Formula One season, with the exception of the 1991 Australian Grand Prix, in which he was drafted in after Alain Prost left the Ferrari team. Morbidelli scored a half-point for 6th in a shortened wet race.

He joined Footwork Arrows for 1994 Formula One season after a year away. He scored 8 points in two years with the team, including a 3rd place finish in the 1995 Australian Grand Prix, a race of high attrition. His points total made him the most successful driver in the history of the Footwork team.

A few mid-season races for Sauber in 1997 Formula One season were unsuccessful and Gianni suffered two injuries through separate testing accidents. He never raced in Formula One afterwards.

Post-Formula One

Morbidelli driving for Volvo in the 1998 British Touring Car Championship season British Touring Car Championship.

In 1998 he drove for Volvo in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), but was not competitive as team-mate Rickard Rydell won the title. His only competitive showing was in the summer meeting at Thruxton, where he charged from near the back of the back to finish fourth, passing many cars in the process. More recently he has competed in the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) and World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) for Alfa Romeo in motorsport, and had outings in several GT championships.

His touring car career seemed to be blighted by a lack of prowess in front-wheel drive machinery, as he had many competitive showings and race wins when racing rear-wheel drive BMW cars.

Gianni Morbidelli is the son of Giancarlo Morbidelli, the founder of Morbidelli motorcycle company which had success in Grand Prix motorcycle racing. In 2008 Gianni Morbidelli is driving in the ADAC GT Masters together with Dennis Retera a Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 with Team "Flatex-Reiter".
