Roelof Wunderink (born 12 December 1948 in Eindhoven, Noord-Brabant) is a Dutch former racing driver. He participated in six Formula One World Championship Grands Prix for Ensign, debuting on 27 April 1975. He scored no championship points.

Racing career[edit]

Wunderink began his career with a Simca in 1970 subsequently moving into Formula Ford and winning the Dutch championship in 1972.[1] With sponsorship from the HB alarm company, he moved into Formula Three and then Formula 5000 in the following two seasons.[1] In 1975, with HB backing, he moved into Formula One with the Ensign team, but was hampered by using obsolete machinery and injuries sustained in a Formula 5000 testing incident.[1] In six attempts, he qualified on three occasions retiring from two races with mechanical problems. In his only finish, in Austria, he was not classified, four laps behind having pit-stopped for tyres.[1] At the end of the season, Wunderink withdrew from top-level motorsport.[1] He was subsequently known to be involved in the property business.[2]
