Chadwick secures W Series finale as Powell wins Brands Hatch finale

Chadwick crowned inaugural W Series champion W Series: Britain's Jamie Chadwick becomes inaugural champion

"Possibly the worst 30 minutes of my life, followed by the best 30 minutes of my life", smiled Chadwick of her afternoon. The six points that Hawkins scored were enough to lift her from 14th in the championship to joint 11th with America's Sabre Cook (USA), who finished ninth today, thereby earning both drivers positions in the all-important top 12 for the season, which guarantees them both participation in the championship again next year. For all that she controlled the first few laps from the front, her closest pursuers, Powell and Finland's Emma Kimilainen, swept past her with unexpected ease, soon finding themselves nine seconds up the road.

Finishing on the podium would have been enough to see Chadwick crowned champion, but even that ended up being a tougher fight than anticipated. By the time Visser, the only person who could deprive Chadwick of the title, pulled off the deftest pass to relegate her from the podium places, pre-race nerves threatened to give way to full-blown panic.

Ladies and gentlemen, Jamie Chadwick is your 2019 W Series champion.

The overall runner-up will get $250,000, with $125,000 for third place and prize money through the field. Having already been signed as a development driver for the Williams Racing Formula One team, the young Brit clearly has a strong future ahead of her.

Tom Brady dealing with helmet change as Antonio Brown loses his grievance
This all comes on the heels of multiple reports that Brown has gone AWOL while getting treatment on his frostbitten feet. The players were able to use the helmets last season under a grace period but will have to make the change this season.

Esmee Hawkey finished 15th in the championship standings.

Chadwick said that was a big plus for the series' credibility, making the dream of Formula One much more attainable for female racers.

She never qualified lower than third throughout, and celebrated an emotional victory in parc ferme with her family.

To get to Formula One, drivers need a super license that requires 40 points acquired in junior series with a national F3 championship worth 10.

W Series Chief Executive Catherine Bond Muir has promised extra European rounds for 2020, with the series looking to expand further across the globe in the following years.
