In 1975 Leila became the first and thus far the only woman to have finished in the top six in a Grand Prix (albeit one which was shortened and thus only counted for half-points).

Always harbouring an ambition to go racing, she drove in Formula Monza and F3 with Lotus and Brabham cars, before winning the Italian Ford Mexico championship in 1973.

In 1974 she was signed to race the Shellsport-Luxembourg Lola in F5000 and silenced her critics by finishing fourth in the final standings. This led to a full F1 season with March in 1975, with the result in Spain the high point, although she did extremely well to finish seventh in the German GP. Her hopes of continuing with March in 1976 were dashed when she lost her backing after the first race of the season, and her brief flirtation with the RAM team was predictably fruitless.

Although squeezed out of Formula 1, Leila continued her career, mainly in sports cars, through into the early eighties. She was to enjoy some excellent results in the Osella prototype with Giorgio Francia, the pair winning the Ignazio Giunti Trophy at Vallelunga in 1979, and the Ore di Mugello in 1981, a year which also saw them finish second in the Monza 1000 Km.

It was with great sadness that the motor racing world learned of her tragically early death, at the age of 48, from cancer in March 1992.
