Aseel Al-Hamad of Saudi Arabia prepares to drive the 2012 Renault F1 car before the Formula One Grand Prix of France at Circuit Paul Ricard.
Al-Hamad took to the track on the same day the ban on women driving was lifted in Saudi Arabia.
Al-Hamad is the first female member of Saudi Arabian Motorsport Federation.
She took to the circuit prior to the French GP as part of Renault's "Passion Parade" event that displayed a number of its classic cars.
Al-Hamad took the wheel of the same car that Kimi Raikkonen won the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in.
