Susie Wolff is the only woman who will drive a Formula 1 car, at least in a few free training sessions, this season. The British woman is a Williams test driver and is the latest on a list of women who have taken part in at least one official Formula 1 Grand Prix session. Other women have competed over the years although only two have actually taken part in an actual race. The Italian Lella Lombardi competed in 12 races and is the only woman to have earned any points, in the 1975 Spain GP, in which she got 0,5, and her countrywoman Maria Teresa de Filippis, who raced three times.

Others who tried to qualify for Grand Prixs were the British driver Divina Galica and the Italian Giovanna Amati (three races each) and the South African Desiré Wilson, in the 1980 British GP.

As for Spanish women, the memory of María de Villota, who was part of the Marussia team until 2012, lives on. Carmen Jordá, a development driver for Lotus, is another, though she is not slated to take part in any Grand Prix for the time being.
