Lella Lombardi, the most successful woman in F1 history. She took part in 17 Formula Grands Prix, debuting on 20 July 1974. She is the only woman driver in history to have a top six finish in a World Championship race, at the 1975 Spanish Grand Prix. Half points were awarded for this race due to a shortened race distance, hence Lombardi received half a point instead of the usual one point. Lombardi later raced in sports cars with some success. She died of cancer in Milan in 1992, aged 50.
