Roberto Pupo Moreno (born February 11, 1959 in Rio de Janeiro[1]), usually known as Roberto Moreno and also as Pupo Moreno, is a racing driver from Brazil. He participated in 75 Formula One Grands Prix, achieved 1 podium, and scored a total of 15 championship points. He raced in CART in 1986, and was Formula 3000 champion (in 1988) before joining Formula One full-time in 1989. He returned to CART in 1996 where he enjoyed an Indian summer in 2000 and 2001, and managed to extend his career in the series until 2008. Also raced in endurance events and GT's in Brazil, but now works as a driver coach and consultant, and although this takes up a lot of his time, he isn't officially retired yet, as he appears in historic events. Away from the sport, he enjoys building light aeroplanes. [2]

Moreno was known as the "Super Sub" late in his career as he was used to replace injured drivers several times.

Career[edit]

The Early Years[edit]

After winning the1976 Brazilian 125cc Karting championship, Roberto set his sights on getting to Europe. He arrived in England in 1979, to race in his first season in Formula Ford. He was the driver, the mechanic and used to tow the car on a trailer. Ron Tauranac let Moreno an old shed to work out off. He had a couple of good results, and these convinced Ralph Firman, Sr., to sign him as a works Van Diemen driver for the 1980 season. Whilst driving for Firman, he would win the Townsend Thoresen British Formula Ford title, winning eight races in the process. Meanwhile in Europe, he drove the same car to three more victories, earning himself second place in the EFDA Townsend Thoresen Euroseries Formula Ford 1600 Championship. His also finished 4th in the RAC British series and 6th the P&O Ferries series. He then rounded out the season by winning the Formula Ford Festival. [3][4][5]

Moreno’s success alerted the attention of no lesser person than Colin Chapman of Lotus. Roberto only returned to Europe in 1981, because Chapman had given him a F1 testing contact with enough money to continue. With these funds, he raced Formula Three, but money was tight. Despite that, paired with Barron Racing, he managed to win two races, however he was more successful across the Atlantic the following season, racing in CASC North American Formula Atlantic Championship, defeating Al Unser, Jr. in a supporting race at the Long Beach GP. Later in 1982, he made another big impression by winning the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières. Prior to that victory, Moreno had found some money to do half a season in the British F3 with Ivens Lumar Racing, winning three races in the process, before opportunity to drive at the Dutch Grand Prix for Lotus. [6][7][8]

Australian Grand Prix (1981-1984)[edit]

In this period, Moreno (who like his friend Nelson Piquet was managed by Australian Greg "Pee Wee" Siddle) was a popular triple winner of the Australian Grand Prix in 1981, 1983 and 1984, before it became a Formula One World Championship race from 1985. These wins came in the days when the Grand Prix was a Formula Mondial race, held outside Melbourne, at Calder Park. He often defeated current or past World Drivers' Champions to win the AGP, including Piquet, Alan Jones, Niki Lauda and Keke Rosberg, as well as other F1 drivers such as Jacques Laffite and Andrea de Cesaris. In the only Australian Grand Prix he competed in but didn't win (1982), he finished third behind future four time World Champion Alain Prost, and Ligier F1 driver Laffite. In all of his pre-F1 Australian Grand Prix drives, Moreno drove a Formula Pacific or Formula Mondial Ralt RT4 powered by a 1.6 litre Ford 4cyl engine. [9]

F1 Substitute (1982 & 1987)[edit]

Moreno was winning races in Formula Atlantic, Formula Mondial and Formula Three, when he received a call-up from Colin Chapman to stand in for Nigel Mansell at Lotus at the 1982 Dutch Grand Prix after Mansell broke his wrist in the previous Grand Prix at Canada. Prior to this, Theodore Racing’s Jan Lammers broke a thumb during the Detroit Grand Prix, and Teddy Yip wanted Moreno to take over the seat. Chapman refused to release him. Then in during the race in Montréal, Mansell injured his wrist, allowing for Moreno to stand in. This soon turned into a nightmare, as the Lotus 91 was a beast to handle, Moreno had barely driven the car, as regular drivers, Mansell and Elio de Angelis did most of the testing, with Moreno being restricted to the older Lotus 87B and Lotus 88 models. He proved to be out of his depth, with his best qualifying lap over two seconds away from making the grid. At the end of 1982, Lotus released him from his duties as test driver. It took his reputation a while to recover from this poor showing. [10][11][12][13]

He was to get another chance, but that race handicapped him for a number of years, but at the end of the 1987 season he was called up to replace Pascal Fabre for the AGS team at the Japanese Grand Prix. Five years after the Lotus fiasco, Moreno was set to make his debut, except he was the slowest of all and once again did not qualify. However, as Mansell injured himself during practice and Williams subsequently withdrew his entry, thus letting Moreno in for his debut. In the following race, the Australian Grand Prix, he drove the ungainly JH22 between the walls to finish 7th, while others hit the walls and broke their cars. After Ayrton Senna’s Lotus was disqualified from 2nd, Moreno was promoted to 6th place, scoring his, and the team's, first-ever point. [14][11][15][16]

In between years[edit]

Moreno went back to North America with Siddle. A sponsor had been found for a whole season of Formula Atlantic, but the support race at Long Beach GP was changed to a Super Vee, then he lost his sponsor. Despite the set-back, his new team, Theodore Racing went off and won the first race at Willow Springs. With the prize money, he did two more race, before the team stopped racing. Luckily for Moreno, the team owner, Teddy Yip help financed a move to another team. He won four races, while championship rival, Michael Andretti won three. Moreno missed out on the title as everytime he won, Andretti would finish second. [17]

For 1984, Roberto decided to return to Europe to race F3. Whilst pre-season testing with West Surrey Racing, he got an invitation from Tauranac to join the works Ralt Formula Two team. Moreno finished runner-up to Mike Thackwell, the pair dominated the final European Formula Two Championship, in their Ralt-Hondas. He tasted victory at the Hockenheim and Donington Park races. Tauranac wanted Moreno to stay for the inaugural International Formula 3000 season (1985), but Moreno had been testing the Toleman at the end of 1984, with Senna’s car. He look set to get a drive with the team, only to be told that they did not have any tyres, and the deal fell through. A move to Indycars was next for Roberto with Rick Galles’s Galles Racing, as he had seen Moreno impress frequently. The deal was for Roberto to drive in the road race. He was invited to do a full campaign in 1986, however they had problems with the car and did not have any good results. When he was unable to find a full-time Indycar drive, he decided to try to get into F3000 driving with Ralt. During that season, he won Gran Premio del Mediterraneo, together with some consistent finishing saw him finished 3rd overall, before receiving the call to join up with AGS. [18][19][20]

His performance at AGS did not get him a seat in F1. He went to Bromley Motorsport in F3000. The team had Gary Anderson as its Technical Director, who whom Roberto had worked with a Galles. With help from Reynard Motorsport, they began the season with virtually no money. Revenge was sweet, when Moreno took a sponsorless Reynard-Cosworth 88D to the title by winning three early-season races, at Pau, Silverstone and Monza in a row. A fourth win came in the Birmingham Superprix. [21][22]

F1 Substitute (1989-1995)[edit]

Not even winning the FIA International Formula 3000 Championship in 1988 in an unsponsored Reynard 88D made the impression needed for a big team to recruit him. Instead, he signed a testing contract with Ferrari, who helped him land a racing drive with the ambitious Coloni outfit. The car was never competitive and Moreno only made the grid four times from 16 attempts. [23][24][25][26]

Initially, 1990 seemed to be even less promising, with Moreno signing for the nosediving EuroBrun outfit, qualifying for just 2 out of 14 races. However, shortly after being informed the team would not be competing in the last two rounds of the season, he was contacted by Benetton to drive their second car, with Alessandro Nannini having lost a hand in a helicopter crash. After qualifying 8th, he then shadowed his team-mate, Piquet, coming home an excellent 2nd on his Benetton debut in the 1990 Japanese Grand Prix although this result was helped by most other top cars dropping out, with Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna famously colliding at the first corner. As a result, Moreno got a full contract with Benetton for 1991 season. [27][28][29][30]

Moreno driving for Benetton at the 1991 United States Grand Prix.

However, the Benetton B191, on Pirelli tyres, was not as competitive as anticipated, and Moreno's best results were 4th place at the Monaco Grand Prix and the Belgian Grand Prix. With all fuss surrounding Michael Schumacher’s sensational F1 debut, the Benetton team overlooked Moreno for taking fastest lap in the race… However, nobody was really paying attention, as this would be his last race for the team before he was controversially paid off and dropped in favour of Schumacher. Jordan had called up the young German for his debut, and he qualified 7th, and was running 5th in the race when his clutch failed. The Benetton management, led by Tom Walkinshaw were after a driver to rebuild the team around, convinced that neither Piquet or Moreno were that driver. Walkinshaw engaged in some high-level dealing behind the scenes and managed to steal Schumacher from Jordan. Moreno was promptly fired. There are rumours to this day that Moreno was purposely driving within himself for the whole season in order to not show Piquet up. As it was, Moreno was offered the vacant Jordan drive for the 1991 Italian Grand Prix, where he qualified a very respectable 9th (ahead of team-mate Andrea de Cesaris). Unfortunately he spun off on the second lap and retired. He would race the next race in Portugal, and then replaced Gianni Morbidelli in the Minardi, at the last race of the year in Adelaide, but Formula One seemed to have passed him by. [31][32][33][34]

For the 1992 season, he found himself back with the minnows, signing for Andrea Moda. The outfit had risen from the ashes of Scuderia Coloni, and after two non-starting races with Alex Caffi and Enrico Bertaggia, decided to start over with Moreno and Perry McCarthy. Moreno and McCarthy faced an uphill struggle, with the uncompetitive team scrambling to even get to most races. Moreno would only qualify the under-tested, under-funded car once, for the Monaco Grand Prix, before the team collapsed following team owner Andrea Sassetti's arrest at the Belgian Grand Prix. [35][36]

Moreno spent his last season of Formula One with the Forti team.

After the Andrea Moda disaster, he spent the next two seasons racing Italian and French Touring Cars, and also attempted to qualify for the 1994 Indianapolis 500. 1995 saw Moreno making a brief Formula One comeback, with the ambitious Forti team. Moreno's Brazilian heritage helped him land the drive. Sadly, their car was laughably slow, and Moreno's best result was 14th in the Belgian Grand Prix. He would exit Formula One crashing into the pitlane wall at the Australian Grand Prix. [37]

Racing IndyCars[edit]

1996 would see Moreno resume his Champ Car career, as he raced a Payton-Coyne Racing Lola-Ford, finishing 3rd at Michigan. At the beginning of 1997, he quit Payton-Coyle for its lack of commitment. He drove for three teams during the ’97 season, earning the nickname "Supersub", with his best result of 5th at Detroit in a Newman-Haas Swift-Ford. Here, he replaced an injured Christian Fittipaldi, he outqualified the team leader, Michael Andretti on several occasions, but still could not picked up a competitive drive for 1998, instead accepting a testing role with Penske. [38]

1998 was more barren, with just three drives. The following season again saw him take two different cars (Newman/Haas and PacWest), with two 4th places his best. In 1999 he also made his first Indy Racing League start at Phoenix International Raceway finishing 6th and returned to the Indianapolis 500 after a 13 year absence finishing 20th for Truscelli Team Racing. Only in 2000, having subbed for Patrick Racing in the previous season, Roberto was granted a full-time seat in one of their Reynard Motorsport-Fords, and he led the series for much of the distance, before hitting a low patch, and losing out to Gil de Ferran, eventually ranking 3rd overall. [39]

Moreno won his first Champ Car race at Cleveland, and in a scene scarcely seen in motor racing, the emotional Moreno wept openly. It had been his first race victory since his Formula 3000 victory twelve years earlier. He won again for Patrick Racing at Vancouver the following year, but was less consistent and dropped to 13th in the standings.

In 2003 he drove for Herdez Competition, taking his Lola-Cosworth to 2nd at Miami, and announced his retirement from motorsport at the end of the year. [40]

Moreno in 2007.

In April 2006, after just one outing in a Brazilian Stock Car at Jacarepaguá, Moreno substituted for Ed Carpenter at Vision Racing, in the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. [41]

In August of the same year, Moreno became the first driver to test the new Panoz-built Champ Car. According to former series champion Paul Tracy, "[Moreno's] a guy who's not going to go out there and make mistakes and go off the road. They need to put miles on the car and run it fairly quickly, and he's the perfect guy for the job."[42][43]


After running thousands of miles of testing in the Panoz DP01, Moreno got a chance to race it at the 2007 Grand Prix of Houston, substituting for the injured Alex Figge at Pacific Coast Motorsports.[44]

Practicing for the 2007 Indianapolis 500

Roberto drove as a replacement for an injured Stéphan Grégoire at the 2007 Indianapolis 500 for Chastain Motorsports. He crashed the car early in the race and finished in last place.

Helmet[edit]

Moreno's helmet has traditionally been yellow, with blue, red, and white wings adorning the visor, sides, and chin area. Written on the lower portion of the helmet is the name "Moreno." Later versions of his helmet have included blue cylindrical designs along with the wings. His helmets are designed by Sid Mosca.
