What a season! It has been a roller coaster, but I am so happy to end the season on a high note with a second place at the season finale at Brands Hatch. I am also so thankful to be part of this fantastic W Series journey.
I should have been a little more tactical in qualifying at Brands and left a final attempt for pole position to the last minute, but I didn’t want to gamble. Even so, I was happy to start the race from fourth – not too far back – and I had a good start. I knew I had the pace to race for the win. I had really good pace just before the Safety Car, I was planning to push for the win at the end, but Alice did the restart really well – she blew me away actually – and that was the end of it really.
Obviously this season has been a bit mixed for me – I missed the first half basically. By only 3 race finishes I became 5th in the championship, which is pretty good!
Congratulations to Alice Powell for the win and Brands and to Beitske Visser for the 3rd place.
And huge congrats to Jamie Chadwick for the first ever W Series championship win!
I will be back next year and I am aiming for the Championship!
