Belgian racing driver of Italian descent.

D'Ambrosio began his career in karting, between 1997 and 2002. He was three times Belgian champion, winning the Mini class in 1999, Junior in 2000 and Formula A in 2002. He won the Junior Monaco Kart Cup in 2000, and won World Cup Formula A in 2002. He advanced through the Euroseries 3000, Formula Master and GP2 Series to Formula 1.

In January 2010, d'Ambrosio was announced as a reserve driver for Renault F1, rejoining the team's driver programme thanks to its newly formed links with the Gravity Sport Management company that looks after d'Ambrosio. On 24 January 2012 it was announced that d'Ambrosio would act as reserve driver for Lotus F1 ahead of the 2012 season and be present at all of the season's races along with drivers Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean. He is also doing co-commentary work for Sky Sports F1 for F1 practice sessions, GP2 and GP3 races and for Belgian French-speaking channel RTBF for F1 races.

D'Ambrosio made his race début for Lotus at the 2012 Italian Grand Prix; he replaced Grosjean, who was banned for one race for causing a multiple collision at the previous round in Belgium. He qualified in 16th place, and started in 15th place due to a 10-place grid drop penalty applied to Pastor Maldonado. He finished in 13th place, on the lead lap, 76 seconds behind.

D'Ambrosio is engaged to marry Natalie Sifferman on 14 December 2013, in Switzerland, where the couple lives.
