W Series, which will use Tatuus F3-spec cars, has backing from 13-time F1 race winner David Coulthard and will have a prize pot totalling $1.5million.

The winner of the category will earn $500,000 to help fund her next step up the racing ladder to F1.

The six-round W Series will launch in May 2019 and feature 30-minute races in Europe, with one round to be held in the UK. Expansion in Australia, Asia and the Americas is expected longer-term.
