Juan Pablo Montoya has won the 2002 Lorenzo Bandini award in recognition of his achievements for his debut season in Formula One last year. The award is named in honour of the late Bandini, the Italian driver who won the 1964 Austrian Grand Prix and competed in 42 races over all. Bandini died tragically from injuries after a fiery crash at the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix.

Montoya, who took his maiden victory at Monza last year, as well as three pole positions, will be presented with the award on April 12th by officials of the town of Brisighella, near Imola which is the host of the San Marino Grand Prix. Previous winners of the award include Canadian Jacques Villeneuve, Scot David Coulthard and Italian Giancarlo Fisichella.
