The 2022 running of the W Series — the open-wheel racing series contested solely by a grid of women drivers — is just one month away from its debut race as part of the Miami Grand Prix weekend. That means it’s time to get to know the drivers on the grid.
This year, of the 17 drivers currently signed up to compete, five women will be making their W Series debut. We’ll run team by team to introduce you to the drivers you need to know. It’s also worth noting that Irina Sidorkova, who had initially been chosen as one of the series’ competitors, will not be contesting the 2022 season after the FIA moved to ban Russian athletes from the sport.
Welcome to Women in Motorsport Monday, where we share the stories of the badass women who have conquered the racing scene throughout the years.
