The all-women series was inaugurated in 2023, with 21 races over seven weekends, but all but the final round in Austin was run separately from F1 events. News that the F1 Academy will be brought into the F1 circus for the entirety of its second season is great for drivers looking to work their way up the motorsport ladder.
Beginning in Saudi Arabia on 7th-9th March, F1 Academy will travel between Asia, Europe and North America and end the year in Abu Dhabi on 6th-8th December. The calendar will see drivers compete on a variety of circuits, from the tight streets of Singapore to the rollercoaster of Zandvoort.
Alongside the race calendar, a supplementary testing schedule is set to be announced in due course.
Susie Wolf, managing Director of F1 Academy, said: “"This calendar cements our ambition to become a truly global series, expanding our reach and improving visibility for our mission.
"We want to inspire young girls and women across the globe and show them that there's a place for them in our sport, and racing alongside F1 will help us achieve this.”
