Why W Series is more than just a last chance

The W Series has effectively taken the place of the Formula 3 European Championship, but can it really be considered a junior single-seater series? The new category must now define its identity.

Setting aside the obvious common denominator for just one moment, the field of drivers who will line up on the grid for the inaugural W Series race at Hockenheim this weekend is a largely diverse group of racing drivers, ranging in age, experience and motorsport background.

There are drivers - like 2019 MRF champion Jamie Chadwick - who are at the relative beginnings of their career path, competing in W Series as one would any other junior single-seater formulae, taking on more seat time and looking for the exposure necessary to provide crucial sponsorship and backing to make the next step.
