Formula One driver from Italy. He participated in 70 grands prix, debuting on March 11, 1990. He achieved 1 podium, and scored a total of 8.5 championship points. After doing the first 2 races for Dallara, he didn't return until the final two races of the season, with Minardi, where he remained until the end of 1992, with the exception of Australia 1991, in which he replaced Alain Prost at Ferrari, scoring a half-point for 6th in a heavily-shortened wet race. He joined Footwork for 1994 after a year away, racing for them for most of the next 2 seasons, finishing 3rd in Australia 1995, a race of high attrition. A few mid-season races for Sauber in 1997 were not successful, and ended his Formula One career. In 1998 he drove for Volvo in the BTCC.
