She started racing at the age of 22 when her brothers taunted her she could not drive fast. Six years later she was a works driver for Maserati.
In 1958, driving the car in which Juan Manuel Fangio had won the previous year's drivers' title, she became the first woman to take part in a World Championship Formula One grand prix in Belgium, where she finished tenth.
Once she she was barred from competing at the French Grand Prix where an official told her:
"The only helmet a woman should wear is the one at the hairdresser's."
