This is a list of Formula One drivers who attempted to qualify for at least one Grand Prix, yet failed to qualify for any. The list currently stands at 77 drivers.

Notable driversEdit

Alfredo Pián was the first driver to appear on the list after his failure to qualify for the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix.

Claudio Langes holds the record of the most appearances in F1 without ever qualifying or prequalifying for a race, failing in all 14 of his appearances with EuroBrun in 1990.

The most recent driver to make this list is Vincenzo Sospiri, who failed to qualify for the 1997 Australian Grand Prix with the Lola-Ford team which withdrew after this round (Vitantonio Liuzzi, Narain Karthikeyan and Pedro de la Rosa have since failed to qualify for a Grand Prix but each has other race starts to his name).

Bernie Ecclestone, who failed to qualify twice during the 1958 season, later became the president and CEO of Formula One Management.
