W Series champ Jamie Chadwick hopeful of breaking into F1


For Chadwick, still just 21, this W Series triumph is likely to be her springboard to loftier feats. As Powell led the field into Clearways and the safety vehicle peeled into the pit lane with six minutes remaining in the 30-minute race, she cleverly bunched up the field then nailed it onto the straight, establishing a lead over Kimilainen that she would never lose. South Africa's Tasmin Pepper came 10th in the championship, out of a field of 20.

She said the money would help fund the next stage of her career, wherever that might be, and would make a "massive, massive difference". I wanted to get past her as soon as possible so I threw one up the inside at Paddock Hill.

The W Series, with identical Formula Three cars, aims to better equip female racers to take on the men further up the motorsport ladder.

Organisers expect her to return next year, when points become available towards a Formula One super licence, but Chadwick will also be looking for more action elsewhere.

"I felt good in the beginning and I knew I had the championship to fight for, and these guys had nothing to lose", she added.

"Going there feels like we've got the odds stacked in our favor, but I don't want to let that jinx anything", said Chadwick, who has won two races and this year became a development driver for the Williams Formula One team.

"I think a lot of people have started to change their minds about it and see it for what it is and what the W Series are trying to do". Next year will be preparing myself in the best way to do that.

The multiple championship victor has been signed as a development driver for the Williams team, and she hopes to make it into Formula One.

Chadwick said after the race: "To be the inaugural W Series champion is simply unbelievable".

The Series is hosted as a support event to the German Touring Car (DTM) championship and that will remain the same. I thought I had Beitske behind me but made a bit of a mistake and she got past.

With the top 12 in this year's standings qualified automatically to return, testing will start in Spain next month to find fresh talent and complete the 2020 grid.
