Ivan Franco Capelli (born 24 May 1963) is an Italian former Formula One driver. He participated in 98 Grands Prix, debuting on 6 October 1985. He achieved three podiums, and scored a total of 31 championship points. From 1998 until 2017 he was a Formula One commentator on the Italian TV station Rai 1.

Capelli debuted in F1 in 1985 for the Tyrrell team participating in 2 races, taking 4th place in Adelaide. He made the 1986 season for the AGS at the same time that he competed in the F-3000, in which he became champion of that year.

The result earned him a contract with March/Leyton House in 1987. With the partnership of designer Adrian Newey from 1988, the March team became the big surprise of that year with Capelli conquering 2 podiums and finishing the championship in 7th place with 17 points even with an aspirated engine car.

The following years were not very good. The March/Leyton House was an extremely fast and at the same time fragile car and its best result was 2nd place in the 1990 French GP.

In 1992 he was hired by Ferrari, but the lack of results and dismissal at the end of the year practically ended his career in F1.
