(GMM) The first champion of the new all-female single seater category W Series hopes the title will move her closer to Formula 1.
Jamie Chadwick, a 21-year-old from Britain, was already a Williams development driver.
"I know what I want to achieve," she said.
"I'm doing simulator work with Williams, and I'll be at Monza with them next month. I hope I can now lean on them for something more," Chadwick told the Telegraph.
Chadwick won $500,000 for winning the inaugural W Series, a category with the support of David Coulthard and Adrian Newey that uses identical Formula 3 chassis.
