Record-breaking female driver Chadwick lands Williams development chance

Record-breaking female driver Jamie Chadwick has landed a development role with Williams.

Chadwick became the first female and the youngest driver to win a British GT race in 2015 and is currently showcasing her talents in the new W Series.

The 21-year-old won a British Formula 3 race in 2018, as well as the MRF Winter Series in 2018-19.

Chadwick was also the inaugural winner of the first W Series race earlier this month and has now joined Williams' Driver Academy.

"It is a great honour to be joining the Williams Racing Driver Academy. The time in the simulator is a fantastic opportunity to aid with my development," said Chadwick. 

"I look forward to spending time in the factory at Grove, immersing myself within the team and assisting wherever I can. Being a part of the Driver Academy is an amazing platform and I'm excited to get started."

Chadwick will attend three European F1® races, starting at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in July.
