Alex Dias Ribeiro (born November 7, 1948) is a former racing driver from Belo Horizonte in Brazil.

Very fast in the European Formula 2 Championship in a March, he was unlucky to move up to Formula One in 1977, when Max Mosley (team owner of the March team) hired four drivers, but couldn’t provide these with competitive material.

Ribeiro entered in 20 Formula One Grand Prix between 1976 and 1979 for the Hesketh, March and Fittipaldi teams, but did not succeed to score championship points.
