Riccardo Paletti drives an Osella FA1C during qualifying for the 1982 United States Grand Prix (West) at Long Beach.

This was Paletti’s third attempt to qualify for a round of the world championship and, like the previous two, he was unsuccessful.

He made his first F1 start in the following round at Imola. However he was killed in a crash at the start of the 1982 Canadian Grand Prix, two days before what would have been his 24th birthday.
