Red Bull sign three female drivers to Academy programme

The team has announced that it will take part in the all-female F1 feeder series and will support three drivers.

Red Bull has signed three female drivers to its newly formed Academy Programme, which will race in this year's F1 Academy.

Hamda Al Qubaisi and Emely De Heus will be driving for Red Bull Racing, while Amna Al Qubaisi will be racing under sister team Visa Cash App RB. All three competed in the all-female F1 Academy last year.

The new cars will enter the grid for the 2024 season operated by MP Motorsport for the Red Bull Academy Programme, which is led by Manager Sarah Harrington.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming Hamda, Emely and Amna, three incredibly talented drivers, into the Red Bull Academy Programme and are looking forward to working with them closely this season," said Harrington.

"This is a landmark moment for us and is testament to our complete commitment to the future of women’s motorsport. F1 Academy provides an opportunity to promote genuine change in our industry and this is a great stepping-stone to help ensure that the drivers progress to the next level. This is a pivotal moment for women in motorsport and we are excited to see what this season brings."
