Lucien Bianchi (born 10 November 1934 in Milan, Italy; died 30 March 1969) was a Belgian Formula One driver who raced for the Cooper, Emeryson, Lotus, ENB, Lola and BRM teams. Bianchi moved to Belgium when he was still a kid, with his father who was a race mechanic. His first race event was at the Alpine Rally in 1951. He won the 1957, 1958 and 1959 Tour de France as well as the Paris 1000 sportscar race in the latter two years. He entered Formula 1 in 1960, where he appeared briefly. He then raced touring cars, sportscars and rally cars, being successful in all disciplines; his biggest victories coming in the 1968 Le Mans 24 Hours, behind the wheel of a Ford GT40 with Pedro Rodriguez and at Sebring in 1962 with Jo Bonnier. He was also leading the London-Sydney marathon when his Citro├źn collided with a non-competing car. In 1968 he re-entered Formula 1 with the Cooper-BRM team but early 1969 he was killed when his Alfa Romeo T33 spun into a telegraph pole during Le Mans testing.
