Prejudice preventing female growth in motorsport, study finds

More Than Equal, an organisation co-founded by ex-Formula 1 driver David Coulthard, said this was a key barrier to women making it to F1. “That hasn’t happened for such a long time for a female driver that what [women drivers] are saying is: ‘Nobody will back us, it’s just too much of a risk and it’s a lot of money.’. By the time drivers progress to formula and GT racing, that drops to 7%. This collection of obstacles leads to female drivers dropping out of the sport much earlier than males, the study said. More than Equal intends to identify emerging female drivers and help them with commercial opportunities and a support programme to progress through the motorsport categories towards F1.
