Felice Bonetto (born 9 June 1903 in Manerbio, near Brescia, Italy; died 21 November 1953 in Silao, Mexico) was a Formula One driver who raced for the Maserati, Scuderia Milano and Alfa Romeo teams.

He enjoyed a brief Formula 1 career, including a win in the non-Championship Portuguese Grand Prix in 1953, and also some success in sports car racing (2nd at the 1949 Mille Miglia, winner of the 1952 Targa Florio) until his fatal accident while driving a Lancia on the Carrera Panamericana, when he left the road and collided with a lamp-post.
