Jamie Chadwick has become the first female champion of the MRF Challenge after dominating to a hat-trick of wins at the season finale in Chennai.

The British driver, who also made history as the youngest and first female winner of the British GT championship in 2015 and first female driver to win a British Formula 3 race last year, overturned an 18-point deficit on leader Max Defourny with three wins from five races in Chennai, including the final race of the campaign, to seal the title in style.

The results saw Chadwick clinch the title by 37 points from Defourny, with Finn Patrik Pasma completing the top three in the standings.

Chadwick is finalising her full 2019 racing programme and is currently part of the 28-driver shortlist targeting a place on the grid for the inaugural W Series. 18 drivers are expected to be picked for the all-female W Series, along with two reserves, racing Tatuus F318 Formula 3 cars as a support series to DTM.
