Viewers across all regions will also be able to stream qualifying and the races from all seven rounds of the 2024 season live on F1 Academy’s YouTube and X channels and via the F1 TV OTT platform.

The new campaign, which will see the series support the Formula 1 (F1) World Championship at seven events across three continents, will begin this weekend at the F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in Jeddah.

All F1 teams are nominating one driver and designing the livery of one car competing in the series.

Susie Wolff, managing director of F1 Academy, said: “Our mission at F1 Academy is to get more women participating in motorsport, both on and off the track. To do that we need to reach new audiences and prove to young girls there is a place for them in our sport.”  

Ian Holmes, director of media rights and content creation at Formula 1, added: “The first live F1 Academy broadcast showed that there is a huge appetite amongst our fans to watch the fantastic wheel-to-wheel racing on display.

“With the support of our trusted broadcast partners, we look forward to creating a world-class viewing experience for fans at home and giving F1 Academy the platform it deserves to showcase incredible female talent and inspire fans.”

F1 Academy recently unveiled US fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger and German sportswear giant Puma as official partners, joining cosmetics company Charlotte Tilbury.
