Doreen Seidel Is Going From Playmate of the Year to Formula 1 Racer

Formula 1 has a new women’s racing division, and one of the inaugural racers is former Playboy Playmate Doreen Seidel. Seidel was profiled by The Sun as she heads towards the starting line.

In the same year as her national ‘award’, she was the ‘lucky charm’ Bunny in front of a Playboy branded car but then wanted to get behind the wheel rather than on top of the bonnet.

From there, he passion for racing cars simply boomed and she now has her sights set on a world championship.

The Munich-based racer participated in her first season of races in 2011 – with the Playboy logo proudly on display – and achieved her first podium finish that year.

Seidel is more than a pretty face, but she certainly has a pretty face as well.

Seidel is a solid driver, too, which is good for her because the winner of the first Formula 1 W Series will drive off with nearly half a million dollars American.

As the years progressed, she rose through the ranks and switched between endurance racing and sprints while also taking up instructing in 2014 to help others get a grip of the sport.

The German raced for Mercedes-Benz this year but is desperate to show what she can do in the W Series next year.

She even still reps Playboy while she races. We’ll certainly be rooting for her when the W Series launches next May.
