Vincenzo Sospiri (born 7 October 1950) is a retired Italian racing driver who made his only Formula One appearance at the 1997 Australian Grand Prix for Lola-Ford.

However, due to the sheer incapability of the T97/30, both he and his former F3000 team-mate Ricardo Rosset were well outside the 107% rule and failed to qualify. The team quit two races into the season after their support from main sponsor MasterCard was withdrawn.

Sospiri became the 77th and most recent driver never to qualify for a Grand Prix.
