Chadwick has spent the last few years competing in W Series - an all-women motorsport championship - which she has dominated taking both titles.

The 23-year-old retains her spot in Williams' academy programme where the team will “work closely with Jamie to support her own progression as a driver, helping with vital preparation ahead of her races, as well as working with her on media and marketing opportunities.”

She first joined Williams' academy in 2019 as a development driver, working in the team's simulator.

For 2022, she will continue to compete in W Series for Jenner Racing - a team owned by former Olympic champion and media personality, Caitlyn Jenner.

Speaking of the news, Chadwick said: Speaking about the announcement, Jamie said “I’m delighted to continue working with the Williams team. I’ve had a lot of support from everyone there throughout the last three years and the simulator work I’ve done has been hugely valuable for my race preparation. 

“I’m looking forward to continuing my programme throughout the 2022 season and I know that the team will be cheering me on during my upcoming 2022 W Series campaign; I’m really proud to continue representing the Williams name on the grid.”

Chadwick completes Williams' junior roster alongside Formula 2 drivers Logan Sargeant and Roy Nissany, and F3 star Zak O'Sullivan.

Williams sporting director Sven Smeets added: “We are incredibly pleased that Jamie will continue to be part of our team. Her immensely impressive performance in the 2021 W Series Championship only reinforced our appreciation for her talent and skill, and we were delighted to play a part in her commendable success. 

“Jamie’s role in promoting female inclusion in motorsport continues to be both hugely important and admirable; she is a fantastic ambassador for the sport, and we are looking forward to working with her throughout the 2022 season.”
