A grid girl who got lucky...

In 1993, Adriana Galisteu was just another pretty promo girl working at the Brazilian Grand Prix when she caught the eye of McLaren's Ayrton Senna.

Shortly after, the young 20-year-old woman and the F1 superstar became an item with Adriana following Senna on the Grand Prix trail and living the good life alongside the three-time world champion until the Brazilian's tragic death in 1994.

Adriana Galisteu eventually became a TV personality in Brasil, and married fashion businessman and heir Alexandre Iodice in 2009.
