David Coulthard MBE, Ted Kravitz, and Lee McKenzie have been presenting W Series since its first ever season in 2019. For its third season, they will be joined by Alex Jacques, Billy Monger, Amy Reynolds, and Naomi Schiff. Jacques, Monger, Reynolds and Schiff all joined W Series’ broadcast team last year after the all-female-championship started its Grand Prix support weekends with Formula One.

The 2022 W Series Championship will race at eight Formula 1 Grand Prix weekends, with double headers in Miami at the start of the season and Mexico City at the end of the season. The 10-race calendar kicks off in Miami on 6-8 May 2022 and will be broadcast by Sky Sports, after it was announced the Series had signed a three year deal for its coverage. Previously, W Series was shown on Channel 4 but now only highlights will be available, apart from the British Grand Prix at Silverstone which will be shown live alongside Sky.
