Martini girl in Monaco – Click above for high-res image gallery

You'd have a hard time concentrating too if this woman were staring right at you. That's what reportedly happened during last weekend's Monaco Grand Prix. Drivers complained during qualifying that a billboard advertisement located just after Lowes hairpin and before the tunnel was distracting them. The advert was for Martini, the "Italian winemaker founded in 1863 and famous for its iconic vermouth" (according to Luxist), and featured the enchanting gaze of model Jessiqa Pace.

Race winner Jenson Button reportedly remarked, "Every time you passed her, it was as though she was looking right at you." Button was able to keep his cool, but others maybe not so much. Last year's champ, Lewis Hamilton, crashed during Saturday's qualifying round in close proximity to the billboard. Eyes on the road, Lewis.

Pace was actually in Monaco for the race, and when she heard about the situation told reporters, "Obviously it's very flattering that I'm distracting the drivers so much, but I'd feel terrible if someone got hurt."

      Dhooh!
      • 5 Years Ago
      I can see how people wouldn't think of her as being from California... she made a press statement and didn't mention guy marriage.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Autoblog, may I point out that Hamilton crashed two hairpins before the "Martini Girl Corner", in Mirabeau? She's not visible from that point.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You are right he did crash before her got to her.

        Maybe his mind wandered with the excitement of see her again! ;-)
        • 5 Years Ago
        Maybe he was already thinking about her. "I hope she's still there. I better hurry." - BAM!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Guessing you all missed her talking on the Speed TV pre-race show. It stole the show pretty much.

      I forgot there was a race going on.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Im sorry, but after seeing the fourth pic, i think i would have crashed my car too. And no, i dont think there a stache on the uppper lip. even if there is, she can bleach that right out, or better yet, get the removed by laser.

      All i can say is she looks sexy.
      • 5 Years Ago
      For whatever reason, she reminds me of Demi Moore, only less intimidating/ masculine. Oh, and she's attractive.
      • 5 Years Ago
      she does not have a moustache. its the digital shadows of a compressed image.
      its all over the other pics too. and yea she has very even, attractive features, tall & fit.

      if I was at bar with her , there would be no way in hell guys would be elbowing me saying, "hey you coulda done betta".

      I also had a hard time (pun intended) watching the cars at that corner. I still think Danica Patrick is sexier. And she's got some skills behind the wheel, also.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yes Venom. Who knows what else? Syphilis, gonorrhoea, ...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Definitely rather have Danica Patrick.
        Plus she has a Lamborghini and who knows what else.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Danica is pretty but her attitude is completely un attractive to me. I'd rather make out with this womans sneakers after a 2 mile run.

        (I have read an interview of Pace before and found her to be quite cute)
      • 5 Years Ago
      Sorry... but it's just a MEH for me.
      • 5 Years Ago
      She's pretty, but I wouldn't say she's stunningly beautiful. Oh well, at least she's not pierced all over.
        • 5 Years Ago
        She looks way better once air brushed and on the ad.

        Who said piercings are unattractive? It depends where...never mind
      • 5 Years Ago
      I LOVE how commenters in here are saying she's not that attractive. As if you'd ever land somebody even half as attractive as her, lol.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Oh I'm sure you have a supermodel girlfriend. Probably two Veyrons in your garage too.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Wow, is it that bad in US?
        • 5 Years Ago
        @ aKi

        Try harder buddy..because there are PLENTY of great looking women in the US..lmao..and yes she really isn't that hot face wise...that billboard is completely edited and touched that it might as well not be her anyways.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I did not notice those 2 Veyrons in your first comment, sorry for that...
        Oh wait, there wasn't any. You were speaking about 1/2 as attractive as the chick on the poster. Between that and having supermodel as a g.f. + 2 Veyrons is quite stretch.
        No, I don't have Veyron.
        Yes, I was dating girl as attractive as this one.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hell, I had a hard time watching the race with her on that billboard. Everytime the camera panned by her my eyes went from F1 car to her.
