The F1 Academy has made a significant announcement that is set to revolutionize the world of motorsport. In an unprecedented move, the final round of the inaugural season will be broadcast live across more than 100 territories. This groundbreaking initiative, launched with unwavering support from Formula 1, has paved the way for women to take their place on the single-seater racing stage, marking the culmination of its first season at none other than the illustrious Circuit of the Americas, alongside the US Grand Prix.
F1 Academy is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that the concluding round of its thrilling season reaches fans worldwide. The broadcast will be accessible on a multitude of platforms, including F1’s YouTube, X, and Facebook channels, as well as F1 TV and various other network broadcasters. This move promises fans the exhilaration of witnessing the intense competitions unfold in real-time.
With the robust backing of Formula 1, the F1 Academy was established to create a robust pathway for women in the world of single-seater racing. The inaugural season spanned across six riveting rounds, shining a spotlight on formidable competitors such as Marta Garcia and Lena Buhler. This series has offered a platform for women to make their mark in the traditionally male-dominated motorsport, propelling them towards competitive progress.
The F1 Academy’s commitment extends beyond the race track. Through enhanced visibility and inclusive platforms, it aspires to inspire not only the racers within its realm but also young girls and women worldwide. It paints a vivid picture of the limitless possibilities in motorsport, both on the track and beyond.
“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.
“We hope to inspire young girls and women at home and show them the possibilities in our sport, both on and off-track”.
Expressing her gratitude towards the broadcast partners, she continued:
Looking ahead to the next season, the F1 Academy is set to establish even closer ties with Formula One. Each team will be backing a driver, and every stage of the all-female series will be broadcast, addressing one of the primary concerns raised by fans during the first season—the lack of visibility the racing series received. With this groundbreaking development, drivers will finally have the platform they deserve to work their way up the ranks
