Formula 1 embraces gender equality with female drivers in F1 Academy

December 20, 2023

The pinnacle of motorsport, F1, has long been considered a male-dominated sport. However, in recent years, there has been a growing movement to increase female participation. The F1 Academy was created with the idea of providing a pathway for women to compete in a F1 race for the first time in more than 30 years (Giovanna Amati, 1992).

“This is a landmark moment for women in Formula One,” said Susie Wolff, Managing Director of the F1 Academy, during an interview. “This partnership with F1 will provide a clear pathway for women to reach the top of the sport. We are committed to working with F1 to ensure that this partnership is a success.” nbc los angeles
