Tomáš Enge (born September 11, 1976 in Liberec, Czech Republic) is a Czech racing driver, the first from his country to take part in Formula One.

He took part in the last three races of 2001 for the Prost team, which would fold at the end of the season after five seasons.

Enge became the first F1 driver to fail a drug test in 2002, and as a result, lost his International F3000 title, which was handed to Sébastien Bourdais. In June 2012, Enge was suspended from racing for 18 months.

Career[]

Before Formula One[]

2001[]

Enge made his Formula One debut for Prost in September 2001 at the Italian Grand Prix, replacing Luciano Burti who suffered a season-ending crash at the Belgian Grand Prix. He finished the race in 12th place. In America, Enge finished in 14th, but in Japan, brake problems meant he was out of the race on lap 42.

After Formula One[]

In 2002, Enge failed a drug test during a race at the International Formula 3000, testing positive for cannabis. At the time, he was one point behind Sébastien Bourdais heading into the final round at Monza.[1]

He finished 2nd at Monza, and would have beaten Bourdais by just three points, but his win from the race at Hungaroring, where the drug test was carried out, was taken away as a result of the positive drug test, meaning he also had to hand back the International Formula 3000 title and was demoted to third.[2]
