Jamie Chadwick is in pole position for F1 success.
Friday, September 2, 2022
Jamie has returned to the W Series for a third year, aiming to become a three-time champion. Last season, the championship went down to the final round, with Jamie and fellow British driver, Alice Powell, neck and neck in the standings.
Jamie produced one of her best drives of the year in the final race in Austin, leading from start to finish, reaching the flag in relative comfort from the rest of the field.
She finished the season with four race wins, and on 159 points, 27 clear of second place Alice Powell.
This year, Jamie has been completely dominant, winning five of the six races, and coming second last time out in Hungary. As we write this, and with only four races left, Jamie could wrap up her third consecutive title next time out in Singapore when racing resumes on 30 September.
Racing for Caitlyn Jenner’s, Jenner Racing, Jamie has had three pole positions and is a huge 75 points clear of her closest rival after six races.
Away from the W Series, Jamie has continued her work with Williams F1 as a development driver and also competed in the inaugural Extreme E season for Veloce, coming second with partner, Stéphane Sarrazin, in the Ocean round held on the coast of Senegal.
She also represented the United Kingdom, with David Coulthard, in the 2022 Race of Champions on the snow and ice in Sweden. Beating Germany’s Formula 1 driver, Mick Schumacher, in the preliminary round, Jamie was knocked out by Indycar race winner, American, Colton Herta in the quarter final.
Her incredible 12 months have led to her being nominated for the prestigious Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year award. She is one of 10 nominees that will be whittled down to a final four before the winner is announced at the Autosport Awards in early December. Her future plans, and plans for next year are still in development. It was a surprise to some to see her doing a third season in W Series this year, but she sees it as a fantastic initiative and feels very privileged to have been part of its development.
F1 is still a viable proposition, and with her team, she is working on a three-year strategy that will take her in a number of directions, including F1. She will be doing some introductory FIA F2 testing well as looking at racing in the US, where there has been some early interest, but for the time being she is focusing on wrapping up a third consecutive W Series.
