After six races in 2023, F1 Academy’s inaugural season will crown its first ever world champion at the Circuit of The Americas between October 20-22.

However, the season finale has just got even bigger, with the announcement that the seventh and final round of the campaign will be shown live in over 100 countries with 18 international broadcasters providing coverage for the event.

Fans will be able to watch the whole race weekend on Formula 1’s YouTube, X and Facebook channels, with F1 in Austin for the 2023 LENOVO United States Grand Prix at the same time.

This news mark another big milestone for F1 Academy after it was announced back in July that all the teams and drivers are to run F1 liveries in 2024.

Words from both Susie Wolff and Ian Holmes

Susie Wolff, Managing Director of F1 Academy, said: “I’ve always said, ‘you have to see it to believe it’ and there is nothing more powerful than racing globally alongside F1.1 would like to thank our broadcast partners for their support and commitment to bring F1 Academy to existing audiences and a new generation of fans around the world. We hope to inspire young girls and women at home and show them the possibilities in our sport, both on and off-track.”

Ian Holmes, Director of Media Rights and Content Creation at Formula 1, said: “This first live F1 Academy broadcast is a sign of the series’ growing popularity and the huge appetite from fans to follow along. We are proud that together with the support of our trusted broadcast partners, we can provide F1 Academy with a fantastic platform to showcase incredible female racing talent to new audiences.”
