Now we will tell you about 5 main heroines of the motorsport world!
Maria de Filippis
An Italian girl from a famous family, she was engaged in equestrian sports as a child, but then she understood that she likes more powerful “horses”. At 22, she decided to prove to her family that she can drive a car no worse than the best F1 male pilots, and became involved in motorsport.
After five years, de Philippis took 2nd place in the Italian circuit racing championship, after which she stepped into the role of Maserati driver.
In 1958, she made her debut at the extraordinary stage of Formula 1 of Grand Prix of Syracuse with Maserati, where she took 5th place. In the same year, she first became a participant in the World Championship, appearing at the Monaco Grand Prix.
Maria Grazia "Lella" Lombardi
Philippe’s compatriot, she’s the record holder both in several races held in the championship and the number of points earned.
In her youth, she played handball, then participated in the rally as a co-driver. Later, the Italian girl began to race in local touring and formula championships, gradually got to Formula 3000, and in 1974 she received an invitation from a private Formula 1 team.
Within two years, Lombardi took part in 12 more Grand Prix, but never beat her 7th place record. Her last Formula 1 race was the 1976 Austrian Grand Prix with the RAM Racing team.

At first, Divina was engaged in alpine skiing and even took part in the Olympic Games three times. In the early 1970s, she became interested in motorsport, and during her career, she managed to race on karts and various formulas, on sports prototypes and trucks.
In 1976, Galika appeared at the home British Grand Prix as part of the private Shellsport/Whiting team, which had “Surtees” at their disposal. Alas, she did not qualify. After the end of her F1 pilot career, Divina worked in various companies involved in training young pilots.
