Targett-Adams said that she hoped continued support will see female drivers finally break through decisively at the top of motor sport.
“I see ultimately, hopefully, W being at more races with us and [it] ultimately leading to more female drivers in Formula 1,” she said.
The comments are a further sign that W Series will return in force this year, after it lost the momentum of its strong first season when Covid resulted in the cancellation of all 2020 races.
The F1 support agreement gives the championship international exposure and plans for expansion in 2022 are clearly well advanced.
This year’s series begins at Paul Ricard in June 26, when Jamie Chadwick will begin her title defence on a grid of new and returning drivers.
