to create new all-women’s championship after cancellation of WSeries final two races due to financial problems

FORMULA ONE is set to create their own all-female racing championship to help women drivers reach the top tier of motorsport. SunSport understands that F1 are looking to work with the existing Formula 3 teams to attract drivers who are under 16. However, the championship was forced to cancel the final two races of their season due to funding. Italian Giovanna Amati was the last female to compete in F1 but she failed to qualify for three races in 1992. Lella Lombardi was the last woman to race in a full F1 race and finished 12th in the 1976 Austrian GP. Jenner has praised the women-only events, but wanted to see a woman driver offered the chance to compete in F1. The W series is a development series, I want to see a woman in Formula One.
