Lewis Hamilton is a big proponent of diversity in racing, and so it is no wonder that he has been a big supporter of the all-female W Series.
However, the Briton now says more needs to be done to help the racers there find opportunities in different series like F3, F2 and finally F1.
“I’ve been following the W Series all year and the last few years, and I wanted to try to get down there and to try to see the young, inspirational women there,” the Briton said when asked about his visit.
“I’ve been watching their races in-between sessions, and even today, I watched their race, so I really wanted to go down there.

“For them, I really feel it is great that we have the W Series, but we as a sport need to do way more for young girls getting into the sport and for these women, if there is no progression from there, from W Series.
“It has been three years, so we need to really work on trying to create something. When you win that, do you progress into GP2 [now Formula 2] or whatever it may be?
“We can definitely do a lot more to support those girls,” Hamilton concluded.
