Volker Weidler (born 18 March 1962 in Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, West Germany) is a German retired racing driver who competed in Formula One for the Rial team in 1989. Outside of F1, he won the 1991 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans for Mazdaspeed with Bertrand Gachot and Johnny Herbert.

Weidler took part in ten races in 1989, failing to pre-qualify for the first eight. Due to teammate Christian Danner's fourth place at the United States Grand Prix, the Rial team were not required to take part in pre-qualifying from the ninth race, the German Grand Prix, and beyond. Unfortunately, Weidler was excluded from his home race, failed to qualify for the next race, and was then dropped in favour of Pierre-Henri Raphanel, who had moved from the Coloni team.

Later in his racing career, he began to suffer from tinnitus and was forced into retirement.
