It was a close battle two years ago between Beitske Visser and Jamie Chadwick, but in the end the Dutch driver lost out on the title by ten points. But she’s back with a vengeance and very confident that with more experience in the bag (WEC, anyone?) she can beat her rival to the title this time.
“It is important that I get off to a fast start in Austria next month, so this week’s pre-season test is vital. I have driven at Anglesey once before – in British F3 in 2017 – and the track is perfect for testing so I am sure we will all learn a huge amount over the five days.
“Retaining the W Series title is the goal this season, but it will be tougher than in 2019. The grid has more depth this year and the likes of Beitske Visser have gained lots of valuable experience in other series since the last W Series race nearly two years ago. Beitske will push me hard and be one of my main rivals for the title again.
“Through my work with Prema in the Formula Regional European Championship last year and my development driver role with the Williams F1 team, I have learnt so much about how to approach races and I hope that will make the difference this year. Racing at some of the best circuits in the world will be great, but winning at them will be even better and that’s the aim.”
