Tatiana Calderón has made history with her debut in the World Series. She is the third woman to compete in this category giving presence to women in motorsport’s world. This first experience was in Bahrain, the last and most important race of the competition in which Pietro Fittipaldi (Lotus) won the champion trophy. This is one of her favourite circuits, so the day was even more special.
Tatiana drove an RP Motorstop’s car, a team that she knows well as she worked with it during her participation in the Euroformula Open Championship. Debuting in World Series was a great experience for Tatiana who has enjoyed a lot the race. She admits that she was impressed by the atmosphere surrounding the track but also by the car as she considered it fantastic.
She is aware that this has been a great opportunity to demonstrate the level in which she can compete. The driver is sure that she has a lot more to show and she wants to convince anyone who has any doubts about it. This experience will definitely open some doors for the future, which seems to be very bright even she is only 24 years old. At the moment, Tatiana is a GP3 Series driver with Arden International team and a Sauber test driver in Formula 1, but she would like to compete in higher categories.
Tatiana has followed in other women’s steps that drove in the World Series before her: Pippa Mann, who participate who participated in 2007 and 2008, and Beitske Visser, that competed from 2014. However, the presence of women in motorsport’s world it is not as usual as we would like it to be. We need to see more women working and competing in the races. Therefore, we can only congratulate and thank Tatiana for opening the way.
