Nick Lars Heidfeld (born 10 May 1977) is a German professional racing driver.

Despite scoring regular podium finishes in 2005 with Williams, and in 2007 and 2008 with BMW Sauber, Heidfeld never won a race after debuting in Formula One in 2000. Heidfeld currently holds three Formula One records; most podium finishes without a Grand Prix win (13), most second-place finishes without a win (8), and the most consecutive race classifications (41).

In 2011, Heidfeld raced in Formula One for the Renault team as a replacement for the injured Robert Kubica, his former BMW Sauber teammate, before being replaced by Bruno Senna. He currently drives for the Rebellion Racing team in the FIA World Endurance Championship and for Mahindra Racing Formula E Team in Formula E.
