F1 has announced it will officially be supporting Lewis Hamilton's Mission 44 charity, ahead of this weekend's British Grand Prix.

The pair has worked together in recent years, although its partnership has now been officially formalised. 

F1 has worked closely with Mission 44 to address inclusion and diversity in the championship, with the series to now start raising awareness of the work being done by Hamilton's charity to create chances for young people facing social injustice.

“Over the last few years, it has been a pleasure to support Mission 44 in its efforts to make our sport more diverse and give students and young people their first taste of the world of F1 and motorsport," said Ellen Jones, F1's head of ESG. 

"We look forward to working with Mission 44 in this new capacity and seeing how many doors we can open together to inspire the next generation.”

In 2023, outreach programmes were put on by F1 and Mission 44 in Silverstone, Austin and São Paulo, which had a positive impact on over 150 young people.

To mark their partnership becoming official, a first of its kind networking event will take place during the British GP. 

The event will see Formula 1 Engineering and Mission 44 MSc Motorsport Engineering scholarship scholars brought together to share their knowledge with young people. It will kickstart F1's new partnership.

“When Lewis Hamilton launched Mission 44 three years ago, it was with the ambition to create a fairer, more inclusive future for young people around the world," said Mission 44 CEO, Jason Arthur. 

"Together with Formula 1, we will be able to increase awareness and access to motorsport career opportunities, so young people, no matter their background, can succeed. 

"Change requires collective action, and we’re excited to grow our partnership with Formula 1 to drive diversity in motorsport forward.”
