Formula 1: Alpine recruit British racer Alice Powell for academy role

The Alpine Formula 1 team has recruited female racing driver Alice Powell for a role in its development programme. Powell, 29, who races in the female-only W Series, has been named talent identification and development mentor for Alpine’s driver academy. She will act as a mentor to up-and-coming drivers, especially female racers, with racing and career advice. Powell will work closely with fellow Briton Abbi Pulling, who joined Alpine last year. “More and more opportunities for women within motorsport are emerging now, but budding drivers often lack guidance and experience in the early days of their career,” said Powell. Pulling, 19, will also race in the W Series this season.
