Where Are The Female F1 Drivers?

The first female driver to compete in an F1 race was Maria Teresa de Filippis back in 1958, eight years after F1’s inaugural championship season. Filippis made 3 Grands Prix starts and 5 entries in her F1 career, with two race retirements and one tenth-place finish. The years have gone by since, and while other women have taken part in F1 races, there has still never been a full-time female F1 driver.
