F1 Academy, the top motor racing series’ all-female development category, and Hello Sunshine, the media company owned by actress Reese Witherspoon, are collaborating on a docuseries that will launch globally on streaming service Netflix in 2025.

The multi-part series will include exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the races, the drivers’ personal stories, and their teams, and sponsors.

The Netflix deal will see the F1 Academy series join the successful Formula 1: Drive to Survive on the platform which has significantly boosted its global viewership. 

Susie Wolff, managing director of F1 Academy said: “We want to be the rocket fuel that drives female participation in our sport, both on and off the track. To have the F1 Academy docuseries launch globally with Netflix is not just a huge step forward in visibility for our mission, but also a resounding statement about the momentum and demand for women’s sport.

“Netflix will open up F1 Academy to a global audience of existing and future fans.”

Earlier this year, F1 Academy secured a new rights deal for the series to be broadcast in over 160 international territories.
