The all-female W Series will be showcased at eight Formula One races next season in a push for greater diversity in motorsports, organizers said Thursday.
It has yet to be decided at which of the record 23 F1 races the W Series will also be held.
We believe it is incredibly important to give everyone the chance to reach the highest levels of our sport, F1 managing director of motorsport Ross Brawn said. “Their partnership with Formula 1 next season shows our determination and commitment to showcase their exciting series and the importance of building greater diversity.
Our global reach, impact and influence will be increased significantly, W Series CE0 Catherine Bond Muir said. We want W Series to entertain, and entertain it will. But we also want it to become a crucial default-option stepping stone for any female racing driver who wants to carve out a professional racing career.
