Interesting, long way to go yet, and even then she might not be able to make the adjustment into f1. Is she in any young driver programs?

Let's see how she copes with F3/F2 before coming to the conclusion of the next female F1 driver; Formula Renault is a long way from F1!

She won Formula Renault BARC

Lewis Won Formula Renault UK 2.0 the BARC is a feeder series to Formula Renault.

Alice attempted Formula Renault UK in 2009 and came 18th

Looking at her Karting she looks pretty much average, she may get into F1 on the basis she's a woman but i doubt it.

http://www.driverdb.com/drivers/6025/career/


Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship has established itself as one of the foremost junior single-seater categories and a very-cost-effective way for young aspiring drivers to learn the UK’s leading circuits.


The Championship is also a proven feeder-series to the National-level Formula Renault UK with nine of the 2009 drivers benefitting from the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship.


Official Championship race suits, an international entry list and full Renault Sport UK support at all rounds help set the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship apart from other club-level series.


New for 2010 is the introduction of the outgoing Formula Renault UK car to the series which will run alognisde the existing BARC car in a one-class Championship. A new look race calendar and Privateer Cup for independently-run entries are also feature for 2010.
