Racing driver. Elio de Angelis was born in Rome, Italy. At the age of only 20, he drove in his first Formula 1 race in a Shadow at the 1979 Argentinan GP. The following year he moved to Lotus where he stayed until the end of 1985 winning the 1982 Austrian GP. Rather than agree to take a subordinate role to Ayrton Senna, he moved to Brabham-BMW for 1986. He was killed during practice at the Le Castellet circuit, near Marseilles.
