Pedro Lamy is a Portuguese racing driver currently racing in endurance races. He finished twice second in the Le Mans 24 Hours (2007, 2011).

He was the first Portuguese driver to score a point in the Formula One World Championship, in the 1995 Australian Grand Prix, for Minardi.

Drove for Lotus in Formula 1 in 1993 (four races) and was signed for the 1994 season. Lamy drove the first four races before suffering serious legs and wrists injuries in a terrible crash during testing at Silverstone. He was sidelined for over a year.

After intense physical therapy, Lamy signed a contract to race in the second half of 1995 for Minardi, and scoring the team’s only point of the season in Adelaide. Lamy stayed with Minardi for 1996 (picture below), but the team lacked resources and the car had little development, and the Portuguese driver finished his F1 career after 32 Grand Prix starts.
