Profile

It was through the clinching of deals that Piercarlo extended his Formula One career from 1981 to 1989 with a points tally of just two. Considering he started in motor racing in 1970, his rise to Formula One was very slow. It took him until 1973 to reach Formula Three. He won the European title in 1977 and moved on to Formula Two. A Formula One ride was clinched in 1981 when he joined Osella, and he stayed with the team until mid-1985 when he crossed over to Toleman, scoring his only points at Dallas in 1984. He was back with Osella in 1986; then Ligier, Zakspeed and Osella - for a third time - before he finally called it a day. On his retirement from driving he became a team owner, running teams in the Italian F3 and F3000 championships, as well as A1 GP.
