The all-new single-seater series for women, W Series, has sparked a debate on whether or not this was the right thing to do.

It was announced yesterday that a single-seater series for women will be launched in a bid to help promote female drivers to F1. Participation in W Series does not require a sponsorship and the prize fund is worth $1.5m. The winner will get $500,000. The series will launch in 2019.

However, this move has split the opinion of female racing drivers, and other racing drivers. Here are what some of them said.

Jamie Chadwick: British F3 race winner and former British GT champion

Alice Powell: former Formula Renault champion

Damon Hill: former Formula 1 champion

David Coulthard: Formula 1 race winner

Pippa Mann: IndyCar driver

Sophia Floersch: Euro F3 driver
