Carmen Jorda Makes Formula E Debut

MAR 23 2018 BY MOTORSPORT.COM 4

Former GP3 racer Carmen Jorda made her FIA Formula E track debut in a special test run in Mexico City at the weekend.

FIA Women in Motorsport Commission representative Jorda later sparked controversy by telling reporters that “the challenge that we women have in Formula 2 and Formula 1 is a physical issue. And I think in Formula E, we won’t have it.”

Watch Carmen Jorda in action…

“I love it, actually I had a good impression,” she said of her driving experience. “I thought it was going to have less grip, less downforce, but it impressed me.

“It’s a challenging car as well, you have to manage so many things that in regular cars you don’t have to. It’s difficult as well; the braking and the power and energy – it’s different, but I enjoyed it.

“I think it’s a great championship, it’s growing, I think it’s the future as well. I’m looking forward to be, maybe here soon.”

Yeah, I’m a Pig…..

Saw her in the GP3 races at the Austrian F1 GP in 2014.
Could see that she struggled to keep the pace. Finished 20th om Saturday, 21st on Sunday.
Was her last season.
The rest of her career was just nice pics.
Disappointing.

It’s great that there are increasingly many women racers in professional motorsports… But Jordá isn’t the greatest example.

It’s unclear why she earned a place either on an F1 team or on the FIA Women in Motorsports commission given her wins relative to other drivers, men & women.
It’s further disappointing when quick googling yields that that she’s done a lot more fashion modeling work than race driving.

She should just drop her clothes already, that is the only reason she is there.

(not a remark on female drivers in general, plenty of them are great and have earned their spot unlike the joke Carmen Jorda)
