Maria Grazia "Lella" Lombardi (26 March 1941 – 3 March 1992) was an Italian racing driver. She participated in 17 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 20 July 1974 and finishing her career with half a point. She is the only female Formula One driver in history to have a top six finish in a World Championship race, which she did 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).
