Hélio Castroneves (born May 10, 1975 in São Paulo, Brazil) is one of the top drivers in North American open-wheel racing, first in the CART series and now in the Indy Racing League. He won the Indianapolis 500 in both 2001 and 2002, and finished second to teammate and countryman Gil de Ferran in 2003.

Racing fans have given Castroneves the nickname Spiderman because of his victory celebration, in which he climbs the fence separating the track from the crowd.
