Jessica Hawkins continued: “It was absolutely worth it and gave me really valuable insight. Nothing compares to the acceleration and braking of a Formula 1 car and after looking at the data I am very proud of my performance. Driving the AMR21 was a dream come true for me and one that I have been ready to achieve for a long time. I will continue to push for more, and in the process, I want to inspire other women to follow their dream, no matter what it is.”

The athlete has increasingly established herself in the sport, as she was a finalist on the podium in the W series and is the British Kart champion, gaining the opportunity to participate in the AMF21 team in 2021.
