6. Carmen Jorda
Born in a racing family, Jorda was influenced by motorsports from an early age. Her father, Jose Miguel Jorda, was a racing driver who introduced her to the sport. Like all other young racers, Jorda started in the go-kart series before progressing to the Spanish Formula 3 Championship, where she was quite successful. Soon, she moved on to the European Formula 3 series, participating in the Le Mans and Indy Car Series. In 2015 and 2016, Jorda secured a spot in the Lotus F1 Team as a development driver with a good perspective of driving in Formula One races.
However, many of her colleagues questioned this position. They declared it as more of a marketing gimmick than a real addition to the team. They also criticized her for attracting the attention of the media for her looks rather than her driving. However, race fans are sure she will achieve some major successes in the future as one of the most promising young female drivers.
