  • Britain's Jamie Chadwick leads the field at Hockenheim

She was presented with her trophy by South African Desiré Wilson, who in 1980 made a history of her own by beating a field of men to win a non-championship British Formula One race at Brands Hatch.

Britain's Jamie Chadwick stood on top of the podium as the first race victor in the new all-female W Series on Saturday with compatriot Alice Powell second at a damp and overcast Hockenheim.

The 20-year-old from Bath lived up to her billing as the pre-title favourite by topping both practice sessions, qualifying on pole in the wet, and then holding off compatriot Alice Powell in dry conditions to take the chequered flag. She wrested back the lead with a smart move on another Brit, Sarah Moore, and ended up victorious by 1.3sec.

W Series racers compete in identical 1.8 liter Formula Three cars with a $1.5 million prize fund for the six race championship, with plenty of media interest in a concept aimed at helping women up the motorsport ladder.

"If it wasn't for the W Series, I wouldn't be back in a race auto", she said. Next year, who knows what the focus will be?

The Duke and Duchess are likely to announce the baby's title in a few days, when the name will also be announced. After nine long months of waiting, Harry and Meghan finally welcomed their first child - a lovely baby boy.

"If I don't win the W Series, and it is one of the other girls, I would want them to get the opportunity to progress, and that is the way the motorsport ladder should work".

"One thing motorsport is bad at is it doesn't allow time for development". You get written off very fast, so what the W Series is offering is a bit of time for development.

"I went down into turn six, went to break what I thought was quite early and almost ended up in Berlin or somewhere", she joked.

Desire Wilson sees no physical or mental reason why a woman can not compete in Formula One, whatever the men might say, and she should know. I feel the potential is there to push on and race at the top level but I am still a way off that at the moment. I want to be there on merit. Then the safety vehicle was out after an incident involving Megan Gilkes of Canada and Emma Kimilainen of Finland. A safety vehicle was deployed for almost 10 minutes before the race continued.
