F1 - WILLIAMS CONFIRMS JAMIE CHADWICK FOR 2021

Jamie Chadwick will continue her work with Williams F1 racing Team as Development Driver for the 2021 Formula One season.

Jamie Chadwick will spend a third year with the Williams Formula 1 team as a development driver, with an increased programme in the team’s simulator in 2021.

Chadwick joined the Williams Driver Academy in 2019 and took on development driver duties, attending a handful of grands prix and handling responsibilities at the factory.

During her first year with Williams, she took part in the inaugural all-female W Series, in which she emerged as champion.

After being retained by Williams in the same position for 2020, Chadwick raced with Prema in the Formula Regional European Championship, ending the year ninth in the standings with one podium to her name.

Chadwick now embarks on a third season with Williams, with the team highlighting that she “will increase her simulator programme and continue to be fully immersed within the team both trackside at certain grands prix and at the factory”.

“I have absolutely loved my time with Williams so far and could not be more delighted to continue working with the team in my role as development driver,” Chadwick said.

“I feel I am improving as a driver all the time, and my time spent in the simulator this coming season will prove to be invaluable. I look forward to fully immersing myself at Williams once again this year.”

Chadwick will race in the W Series again this year, following its Covid-19 related hiatus in 2020.

The series will span eight rounds, with all events forming part of the support schedule at Formula 1 grand prix weekends.

Chadwick will also compete in the very first Extreme E series this year with Veloce Racing – the electric off-road series is set to get underway next month.

Simon Roberts, Williams Team Principal, commented: “We are delighted that Jamie will continue as a development driver for the team.

“Not only is she a great female ambassador for the sport and plays an integral part in promoting women in motorsport, her work in the simulator and behind the scenes at Grove is hugely valuable.

“Jamie’s determination and drive to do more, as well as push the boundaries, is something we admire at Williams and we are all looking forward to the year ahead with Jamie as part of the team.”
