Having spent past 5 years on side-lines of single-seater racing, Vicky embraced the new opportunity to compete amongst 18 selected Women drivers over 6 Races.

Taking steps to settle into race environment with Tatuus F3 T-318 race car and different engineer for each race, Vicky climbed points table to eclipse best result of 5th Overall at Race 3 in Misano.

Heading into Race 5 at Assen TT circuit, the Italian stunner posted P2 in Free Practice 2, confirming speed is there, confidence improved and equality on race-track coming to the fore.

Final Race at Brands Hatch was nail-biter for all 18 drivers. Not only were Overall points the key decider on who automatically goes through within confirmed Top 12 places, but also those relegated below were unable to reapply for 2020 WSeries unless called upon.

Pressure amped right up there, Vicky raced for Overall 6th position cementing Final standings of 9th, earning selection for up-coming season.

I caught up with Vicky via audio interview, asking what the experience was like competing in 2019 WSeries, the challenges and successful moments and of course, celebration for gaining selection for 2020 WSeries Championship.
