Alessandro "Alex" Caffi (born March 18, 1964 in Rovato, Italy) is an Italian former racing driver best known for his time in Formula One.
In 1987 Caffi raced for Osella alongside German driver Frank Jelinski. The Osella-Alfa Romeo package was by far the worst on the grid and failed to score any points - although Caffi was able to beat Jelinski over the course of the year.
Caffi opted to switch to the small French AGS team in 1988 - which admittedly was a better package than last year's Osella but Caffi was still unable to score any points.
Buoyed by the success of 1989, Caffi signed a two year deal with the team in 1990.
