W Series leader Jamie Chadwick: ‘F1 is the dream of every young driver’

The 21-year-old takes a 13-point lead into Sunday’s Brands Hatch finale but her ambitions stretch far beyond claiming the inaugural title of the women-only event

Jamie Chadwick is, at 21, quick, compelling to watch and no stranger to winning. She already boasts an impressive racing CV and on Sunday afternoon she is in every position to add to it by becoming the inaugural winner of the all‑women W Series championship in the final round at Brands Hatch. For Chadwick, though, this is just a step towards her ultimate goal. “F1 is the dream of every young driver,” she says.

Earlier this year Chadwick was taken on by the Williams F1 team as part of their junior driver programme, which she says is the first proper step in fulfilling her ambition. “Being in amongst the team, you learn how they operate, how an F1 team works … It hits home to me that, if I do a good job and get to be where I need to be and there is an opportunity down the line, it makes that dream feel a lot more like reality.”
