April 8, 2023

The F1 Academy, the new all-female series for up-and-coming talents, will align its calendar with Formula One from 2024 and will be a part of the Formula One weekends, an official announcement has confirmed.

The inaugural F1 Academy season is set to kick off with the Austrian race in April 2023 and will feature five teams with three drivers each, who will battle it out over seven events and 21 races.

All seven events of F1 Academy 2023 will be held at current F1 circuits.

Stefano Domenicali, CEO, F1, commented:

We haven’t yet started the [2023 F1 Academy] season on the track but I can confirm with you that next year, F1 Academy will be on the racing weekend with Formula 1. Of course, not everywhere, but that will be part of the plan to promote F1 Academy… that’s something we are really keen [on], that hopefully that will be the right boost for the season to grow; of course we have just started.

F1 took the leadership on that to try to do something, investing, believing that by creating attention to that project we can have hopefully as soon as we can, a girl, a woman, in F1. That’s our hope and that’s why we are really investing a lot. Susie Wolff will lead this plan, this programme and in the next couple of weeks we will announce the details of what is more than [on] the track because we need to start to create awareness.

Susie Wolff, CEO, F1 Academy, said:

It’s great that the F1 Academy will be racing during F1 events next year and this highlights again the importance of the series to Stefano and the team at F1. We are looking forward to getting the season under way in a few weeks’ time and while there is lots of work to do, we are forming a clear plan to build a project that really works for the future of female talent in motorsport.
