Analysis

The nightmare season of a W Series title favourite

She came into 2021 as a W Series title contender, but Beitske Visser has had a frustrating season, marred by a horrific crash at Spa and floundering in 12th place in the drivers’ standings. After misfortune and on-track clashes, the Dutch driver wishes the season was just starting now

If you had asked, heading into 2021, who the likely title contenders for the championship's second season would be, Beitske Visser is surely a name that would have cropped up, alongside current title rivals Jamie Chadwick and Alice Powell and third-placed Emma Kimilainen.

Dutch driver Visser finished second in the series' inaugural season in 2019, taking one win, three other podiums and two fastest laps to end the year just 10 points behind champion Chadwick and 24 clear of third-placed Powell.
