Nick Lars Heidfeld (born May 10, 1977 in Mönchengladbach, West Germany) is a German racing driver.

Despite scoring regular podium finishes in 2007 and 2008, Heidfeld has yet to win a race since entering Formula One in 2000. This means that amongst the current drivers, he has had the most GP starts without standing at the top spot on the podium. Heidfeld has now started over 170 races, so if he were to eventually win a race he would break the record for most starts before a maiden victory. This is currently held by Mark Webber, who claimed his first victory on his 131st attempt. Heidfeld also currently holds three other records; he is the driver who has scored the highest number of world championship points without a Grand Prix win, holds the record for the most podium finishes without a Grand Prix win (13), and has the most second place finishes without a win, with 8. He also holds the record for the most consecutive race classifications with a tally of 41, and shares the record for most finishes in a season with Tiago Monteiro and Felipe Massa after finishing all 18 races in the 2008 season.

In 2011, Heidfeld was racing in Formula One for the Renault team as a replacement for the injured Robert Kubica, before being replaced by Bruno Senna.
