W Series Hockenheim: MRF champion Chadwick tops FP1 for first round

Jamie Chadwick topped the first ever official W Series practice session at Hockenheim with a fastest time of 1m38.650s

MRF Challenge champion Chadwick led the way for most of the session - initially trading top spot with Alice Powell in the first 15 minutes - and ended first practice 0.360 seconds faster than Emma Kimilainen, who set a lap fast enough for second in the latter half of the session.

Fabienne Wohlwend was third - a position she occupied for the majority of the session - followed by Naomi Schiff and Beitske Visser in fourth and fifth respectively.

The session was halted briefly by a red flag with just over 20 minutes to go, with the field setting their fastest laps after the restart.

Sarah Moore was sixth fastest, while Miki Koyama was seventh.

Powell ultimately slipped back to eighth on the timesheets. South African Tasmin Pepper was ninth, while Marta Garcia - returning to single-seater racing this weekend - rounded out the top 10.

In total, 20 cars competed in the opening practice session of the inaugural weekend on the DTM support bill, with reserve drivers Sarah Bovy and Vivien Keszthelyi claiming 11th and 17th respectively.
