Giovanni Lavaggi

Former consultant engineer and keen enthusiast, Lavaggi competed briefly in rallies and raced a Porsche 962 sports car in 1989 before spending a season in Formula 3000 during 1992 in an effort to prepare himself for a Formula 1 challenge. He drove first for Pacific in 1995 and then for Minardi in 1996. That was it as far as a Grand Prix career was concerned.
