4. Claire Jedrek
As a TV personality and fitness instructor from Singapore, Jerdek wasn’t interested in motorsports. But as a part of a journalistic team that broadcasted a Formula One event, she developed an interest in racing. However, she needed to start from the bottom, so Jerdek first raced go-karts, proving to be highly successful.
After that, she moved to the Malaysian Super Series Championship of touring cars. She was behind the wheel of a Honda in races supporting the Formula One weekend. At the end of the season, Jerdek was seventh among the 36 drivers. This was a fantastic achievement for a novice driver. She believes in preparing, so Jerdek trains on racing simulators, as well as in the gym.
