Bruno Giacomelli (born 10th September 1952 in Poncarale, Brescia, Italy) is an Italian former racing driver.

Giacomelli made his debut in Formula One in 1977 with the LEC team. Giacomelli failed to qualify for a number of rounds before starting his first race at the German Grand Prix, where he finished fourteenth. With LEC leaving the world championship at the end of the year, Giacomelli returned to F2 for 1978, winning the championship, which in turn allowed him to secure a full season driving for Hesketh in 1979.

Giacomelli returned to the series several years later in 1990 when he signed for the Life team. The team were absolutely woeful and he'd failed to pre-qualify on every single attempt.
