F1 Academy: Susie Wolff says new series will increase female talent pool and ‘open door to F1’

Wolff has spent a career trying to prove that women are able to race at the very highest level of motorsport, and to help create ways to make that possible. If you look at Ferrari’s support of the [FIA] rising stars programme. For Wolff, one of the big causal factors behind the lack of female representation at the top of motorsport is the lack of representation of women in F1, and therefore the small number of role models for girls to look up to. “It’s about more than just 15 girls going racing,” Wolff says. “I get the argument as to why the sport should maybe look at segregation,” she sys. If you look at men and women’s football, they can’t be mixed, because women can’t run as fast as men.
