Lamberto Leoni Wikipedia
Lamberto Leoni (born 24 May 1953 in Argenta) is a former racing driver from Italy. He participated in five Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, failing to qualify for three of them. He scored no championship points.
After racing in Italian Formula 3 and Formula 2 with mixed results, Leoni moved into Formula One with a hired Surtees TS19 at the 1977 Italian Grand Prix, but failed to qualify. The following year he joined Ensign but left after two more failures to qualify.
Leoni returned to Formula 2 and then Formula 3000, forming his own First Racing team in 1987. The team made an abortive attempt to enter Formula One with a car which was later used by the unsuccessful Life outfit. He subsequently managed the career of Marco Apicella.
Following his F3000 activities, Leoni became involved in powerboat racing, winning many races and almost winning the 1993 World Championship.
