The Lorenzo Bandini Trophy (Italian: Trofeo Lorenzo Bandini) is an annual award honouring the achievements of an individual or team in Formula One motor racing.[3] It is named after the Italian driver Lorenzo Bandini, who died three days after suffering severe burns in a major accident at the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix.[4] The accolade's trophy, a ceramic replica of Bandini's Ferrari 312/67 car adorned with the number 18,[5] is awarded for "a commendable performance in motorsport",[1] based on how the success was achieved rather than the results attained,[6] and their character and approach to racing.[7] A panel of 12 judges, composed of motor racing journalists and former Formula One team members, determines the recipient of the award. The winner is honoured at a ceremony in Bandini's home town of Brisighella in Emilia-Romagna, and the trophy is presented by the Associazione Trofeo Lorenzo Bandini.[8] The accolade is considered highly prestigious in the world of motor racing.[3][9]

The inaugural winner was the Italian driver Ivan Capelli in 1992.[10] No award was given in 1993 and 1994 and no-one has won more than once.[10] Although the award has usually been given to racing drivers for their achievements from the previous season, it has been awarded to two racing team members: the Ferrari president Luca Cordero di Montezemolo (1997),[10] and the marque's vice-chairman Piero Ferrari (2013).[11] The accolade has been won by racing teams on two occasions:[1][12] the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team for winning the World Constructors' Championship with a V6 engine coupled with hybrid technology (2015),[1] and Scuderia Ferrari to commemorate the 70th anniversary of its establishment (2017).[12] It has been presented to Italian drivers and teams on eight occasions, followed by German competitors and constructors with four wins and three for British racers. The 2019 winner was the Alfa Romeo Racing driver Antonio Giovinazzi.[2]
