Williams announce Chadwick for 2021

Williams have confirmed Jamie Chadwick will continue her role as development driver for the team in 2021.

Chadwick won the inaugural W-Series championship two years ago and is set to defend her title after the 2020 season was cancelled. W-Series will run alongside F1 on the support programme at eight evets this season. “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," said Chadwick. "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 is also set to race in the new Extreme E series which gets underway in April. Williams team principal Simon Roberts is pleased Chadwick will be able to race in multiple disciplines this year as well as being the team's development driver. "We are delighted that Jamie will continue as a Development Driver for the team," said Roberts. "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.”
