Williams has confirmed two-time reigning W Series champion Jamie Chadwick will remain part of the team’s driver academy for a fourth year. Chadwick joined the Williams academy in 2019 and has since claimed success in each of the first two seasons of the W Series.
The 23-year-old will again feature on the grid of the all-female championship racing with the new Jenner Racing outfit, the team owned by former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner.
