Giedo van der Garde (born Giedo Gijsbertus Gerrit van der Garde,[1] 25 April 1985 in Rhenen, Netherlands) is a former Dutch Formula One driver, currently driving in the World Endurance Championship and in the European Le Mans Series. In Formula One, he had driven for Sauber and Caterham.

Formula One CareerEdit

2007-2008: Spyker test driverEdit

Van der Garde has previously tested in 2007 for Spyker and in 2008 for Force India. He was originally announced as Super Aguri's test driver for the 2007 season,[2] but was later announced surprisingly as the test and reserve driver of Spyker.[3]

Super Aguri made a belief that his contract with them was still active, saying "Super Aguri F1 Team has a valid contract with Giedo van der Garde to drive for the team in the position of Friday and Test Driver for the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship. The contract was submitted by the SAF1 Team to the Contracts Recognition Board on 23rd January 2007."[4] However, van der Garde took part for Spyker in testing at Silverstone Circuit, giving an indication that they resolved the contract dispute.[5] He was originally going to be Spyker's Friday test driver in the Australian Grand Prix, but he did not manage to get the required FIA Super License in time.

2011-2013: CaterhamEdit

The Dutchman was a candidate for a race seat at Virgin in 2011 but was overlooked in favour of Jérôme d'Ambrosio.[6] He also tested for the Caterham team in the 2012 season,[7] for China and Japan.[8][9]

On February 1, 2013, van der Garde got the second driver seat alongside Frenchman Charles Pic for the 2013 season. At the Monaco Grand Prix, he achieved the team's highest qualifying position by qualifying 15th, being the first time that Caterham reached Q2 this season.

At the Canadian Grand Prix, he retired from the race after being hit by Red Bull's Mark Webber at the hairpin on lap 43.

He achieved another impressive qualifying position at the Belgian Grand Prix by qualifying 14th.

At the Japanese Grand Prix, he had a crash with Marussia's Jules Bianchi at the start of the race. At the next race at the Indian Grand Prix, he retired on the first lap from a collision, angered over the incident with Marussia driver Max Chilton.

van der Garde would not be confirmed as one of Caterham's drivers for next season.

2014-2015: SauberEdit

After having no drive for Caterham in 2014, he was announced as a test driver for the Sauber team.[10] Van der Garde later took legal action against the team, claiming that they did not choose him to race for them in 2015, instead signing Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson[11] On 11 March 2015, the Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, upheld the Dutchman's claim and ordered the Sauber team to allow him to race, despite him having spent no time in the car in pre-season.[12] However, van der Garde dismissed the order, aiming to find a different permanent solution in the future.[13] He later ended his contract with Sauber on mutual terms, stating that his Formula One career is most likely done.[14]

Personal lifeEdit

In December 2013, van der Garde married his long-time girlfriend Denise Boekhoorn.[15]
