“I’ve always said, ‘you have to see it to believe it’ and there is nothing more powerful than racing globally alongside F1,” articulated Susie Wolff, Managing Director of F1 Academy.

Expressing her gratitude towards the broadcast partners, she continued: 

“We hope to inspire young girls and women at home and show them the possibilities in our sport, both on and off-track”.

As of next season, the F1 Academy will have closer ties with Formula One with each team backing a driver as well as every stage of the all-female series being broadcast. One of the main complaints from fans during the first season was the lack of visibility the racing series was getting due to it not being broadcast. From now on, the drivers will get the platform they deserve in order to work their way up the ranks.
