They actually look hot. Names? So we can follow their brilliant careers I'm sure [straight face]...


well that was 2012 but see first post in topic. Left to right Vicky Piria, Carmen Jorda and Alice Powell.

So 3 female drivers in a high-level competitive single seater series. All did the full schedule.

Final Standings (tm = teammates placing)

19th = Alice Powell (tm 10th)
26th = Vicky Piria (tm 13th despite only doing half the season)
28th = Carmen Jorda (tm 9th)

Only Alice Powell actually scored a point.

Q: Why are there so few women driving in the top motorsport categories ?
A: Because there are so few winning in the lower categories ..

So the question people really should ask is "Why are there so few women driving in the lower motorsport categories?"

didn't Powell do well in Renault 3.5 series and win British young driver of the year award a couple of years ago? Is the step up that much that she just isn't competitive anymore?

There's nothing of any particular note on her wiki page. Apparently she won some feeder series I've never heard of (nor any of the drivers competing in it, accept Dino Zamparelli, a GP3 also-ran).

Jorda is still in GP3 but she is hopelessly slow, invariably last in pretty much every race.

Powell is currently last in British F3. (Current series and standing shown on first page of the thread)

I still believe it is Visser that will be the one to crack F1 eventually. There's something about her, I see a proper racer there. She has struggled a lot with the heavier car in WSR 3.5 - I think she should have done WSR 2.0 first - but she is gradually improving.

She's doing OK but you really think F1? Based on what? Some race wins , but she's not even come close to winning a championship yet!

She's pretty much last in FR 3.5 at the moment, only really beating Mavlanov in the Championship. For me to take a driver seriously as an F1 candidate, they would probably have to be top 5 in the Championship at least.

Michela Cerruti and Katherine Legge apparently announced as Formula E drivers in 2014.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michela_Cerruti
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katherine_Legge

On the face of it, Cerruti's previous success probably lends her better chance of doing well here. But saying that, her main experience seems to come from a series that Gianni Morbidelli managed to win last year and in AutoGP, a series not exactly bursting with talent at the present.

We knew about Legge but not Cerutti, thanks. I guess just having won now in AutoGP would have helped ink the deal. It's good news though- some pretty handy and well proven drivers in the Formula E field.

Not technically motorsport, but I've just started playing Sonic and Sega all star racing transformed. And a few races in I unlocked my first hidden character which turned out to be Danica Patrick in an open wheel single seater! Surprised me a bit that she would turn up in a Japanese video game.

A good run today from Susie Wolff:

11. Felipe Massa Williams-Mercedes 1m20.542s +1.411s 19
12. Jean-Eric Vergne Toro Rosso-Renault 1m20.586s +1.455s 23
13. Nico Hulkenberg Force India-Mercedes 1m20.592s +1.461s 22
14. Sergio Perez Force India-Mercedes 1m20.598s +1.467s 24
15. Susie Wolff Williams-Mercedes 1m20.769s +1.638s 22


She should be happy with that. Massa is a good benchmark so 2/10th off is very respectable I'd say.

I'm a bit surprised by her performance, i'm guessing she was on a similar program to Massa?

Have to assume so. The team apparently set her a target time of within 0.5 of Massa and they couldn't really do that if they were on significantly different programs.

I'm not surprised to see her do well and get so close. There will be many drivers out there that can get that close.

I think the issue people have with her is that she hasn't earned this test drive in the ways other drivers have to.

Good on Susie. She didn't shame herself at all and her attitude after the disappointment of Silverstone was fantastic. I'd expect Williams to give her another FP run later this year actually.

Not a great start for the two Formula E ladies (Katherine Legge Michela Cerruti) and who form the back row of the grid for the first race...

And both got penalties for crossing the pit exit line during the race. :?

Cheers Covalent, good spot. I haven't been able to update this thread as often as I'd liked to this year, but I'll try and wrap it up as the season draws to a close. Not much to get excited about this year though..

I really wouldn't want to wear the overall of Liza Nash: SUPERCHEAP and than in smaller letters auto. Any dude fancying her could be misinterpreting that.
Danielle Byrnes looks cute with that bow in her hair.

They were in a V8 Supercar 'WAGs' race.

So... A PR stunt rather than a serious race, I assume? Be interesting if any of them beat the boys, of course!

Yeah it was a PR event to promote women in racing, most of them do a little bit of track day stuff on the side, Liza Nash co-owns a team. Leanne Tander was also there who is quite an accomplished racer

A pretty disastrous year for the ladies I'm afraid. Plenty out there racing but none of them winning consistently. I'll write up final standing sometime between now and year end, but in short I don't see any "next female F1 driver" potential at the moment.

Anyone know of any new female drivers in single seaters this year? I've not had time to reserach yet, but I've not seen much on the news boards,
