The verdict on W Series' first weekend
Since its launch last year, W Series has attracted much attention and debate. But with its first race, which took place at Hockenheim last weekend, what was pure speculation turned to fact. Here are the key takeaways from the event
"I spent three years planning this. I planned the business, I planned the hospitality, the cars, the drivers, all the races - the thing that I hadn't run through was everyone being lined up on the grid, I hadn't thought of that moment and suddenly it was so big. It was an extraordinary moment and for me, a memory of my life. I don't know if anything will supercede that."
That was W Series CEO Catherine Bond Muir's immediate assessment of the championship's inaugural race, which took place last weekend.
