Lucien Bianchi (November 10 1934March 30 1969), born Luciano Bianchi, was a Belgianmarker racing driver who raced for the Cooper, ENB, UDT Laystall and Scuderia Centro Sud teams in Formula One.

Bianchi was born in Milanmarker, Italymarker, but moved to Belgiummarker in 1946 when he was still a child, with his father who was a race mechanic working, before the war, in the Alfa Romeo competition department. Lucien Bianchi's 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 sports car race in the latter two years.

He entered Formula One in 1959, although only with sporadic appearances at first. He drove various cars under the banner of the ENB team, including a Cooper T51, a Lotus 18 and an Emeryson. After a couple of races for the UDT Laystall team in 1961, driving another Lotus, he returned to ENB for whom he drove their ENB-Maseratimarker. He finally secured a more regular drive in Formula One in 1968, with the Cooper-BRM team, although success was elusive despite a bright start.

Bianchi also raced touring cars, sports cars and rally cars, being successful in all disciplines, his biggest victories coming in the 1968 Le Mans 24 Hoursmarker, behind the wheel of a Ford GT40 with Pedro Rodríguez and at Sebring in 1962 with Jo Bonnier. He was also leading the London-Sydney Marathon when his Citroën collided with a non-competing car.

He was killed when his Alfa Romeo T33 spun into a telegraph pole during Le Mansmarker testing in 1969.
