I also think it's Lella Lombardi, sixth at Montjuich (1975 Spanish GP). On lap 25 of the 1975 Spanish GP the leader Rolf Stommelen's Hill-Cosworth lost his rear wing. The car then went out of control and crashed into the safety barrier that collapsed under the impact and killed five people, three marshals and two reporters.
Niki Lauda, who had to retire shortly after the start when he was rammed by Mario Andretti as the American attempted to force his way through, warned himself the Race director Count de Villapadernia (a 1930’s private driver) and after a further four laps and five minutes the race was aborted and as he had been leading at the time Jochen Mass was declared the winner.
The statistics would remember this dramatic race as the only half point scored by a female driver in F1. Lella Lombardi was indeed classified sixth. But only half points were awarded as the race had not covered sufficient distance. The normal distance was 75 laps.

Certainly would have helped resolved any ties in the end of year tallies, though!
