Legendary Williams Drivers

Marc Gene

2009 Le Mans winner Marc Gené made his Formula 1 debut in 1999 with Minardi, scoring the team's first point for four years. His second year with the team in 2000 was his only full season in Formula 1, but it proved less successful and he ended the campaign pointless. He signed for Williams as test driver in 2001.

Williams test driver Marc Gene was handed his opportunity to race for Williams in the 2003 Italian Grand Prix when regular driver Ralf Schumacher was concussed in testing ahead of the event. He didn’t disappoint, finishing fifth – his best result in F1.

On Schumacher’s return Gene returned to his testing role, until he was again called up to replace the German in the 2004 French and British GPs. Two lacklustre performances cost him any further opportinuty to race, losing the seat to Antonio Pizzonia, and Gene’s Grand Prix career was over.
