Italian born Andrea De Cesaris never had the chance to stand on the top spot on the Formula One podium, despite driving in 14 seasons and starting more than 200 races. This however, does not make his career or his life any less inspiring.

De Cesaris was a man who achieved his dream of racing in Formula One, and managed to craft a career from it spanning from 1980 with Marlboro and Alfa Romeo, to 1994 with Sauber. In between he drove for teams like McLaren, Ligier, 7UP (Jordan) and Tyrrell. He placed second twice and third three times, and earned enough points in 1983 to place 8th overall in the F1 World Championship. He earned a pole position at Long Beach in 1982 and was the fastest guy around Spa during the 1983 Belgian GP.

This was a man who spent his career racing in the top-tier international motorsport and did so honorably. Rest in peace, Andrea.

Let’s look back on Andrea De Cesaris’ time in Formula One.
