Jamie Chadwick’s bid for a hat-trick of W Series titles got off to a perfect start with a double victory in Miami, where the female-only Formula 3 championship supported the Formula 1 grand prix.

Chadwick took the lead off the line in race one when Nerea Marti fluffed her start from pole position. In a race featuring two safety car interludes and a red flag, Emma Kimiläinen passed Chadwick with a great move at Turn 11, but as the drivers faced a one-lap shootout after the latter safety car, the Finn overshot Turn 1 and gifted victory to her British rival.

The following day, Chadwick claimed her fourth W Series win in succession (including the double-header in Austin that ended the 2021 season) with a lights-to-flag victory in her first weekend driving for a team owned by American media personality Caitlyn Jenner.

The next races will take place this weekend in Barcelona.
