F1 Academy docuseries produced by Hello Sunshine to launch globally on Netflix in 2025

F1 ACADEMY™ and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine have today announced that the docuseries currently in production will launch globally on Netflix in 2025.

The multi-part, adrenaline-fueled series will give fans exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to the all-women driving category, highlighting the drama of the races, as well as the personal stories and high stakes for the drivers, their teams, sponsors, and families involved, as they break barriers in one of the most demanding sports in the world.

The partnership with Netflix will see the F1 ACADEMY series join global sensation Formula 1: Drive to Survive on the service, giving the series an unrivalled platform and fans the opportunity to engage with F1 ACADEMY in a new and immersive way.

This announcement follows the news that the 2024 season of F1 ACADEMY is being broadcast in over 160 territories and streamed live on F1 ACADEMY’s YouTube and X channels and via F1TV, bringing the series and its mission to fans globally.

 

Susie Wolff, MBE, Managing Director of F1 ACADEMY said: “We want to be the rocket fuel that drives female participation in our sport, both on and off the track. To have the F1 ACADEMY docuseries launch globally with Netflix is not just a huge step forward in visibility for our mission, but also a resounding statement about the momentum and demand for women’s sport. We want to inspire and empower the next generation of young women, and Netflix will open up F1 ACADEMY to a global audience of existing and future fans.”

 

Reese Witherspoon, founder of Hello Sunshine, said: “We started Hello Sunshine to change the narrative for women, and Susie Wolff and F1 Academy are doing just that by creating new opportunities in the thrilling world of motorsport. As these dynamic and fearless drivers break barriers behind the wheel, we are excited to partner with Netflix to tell the stories of these powerhouse leaders. What we know is that when we put women at the center, people show up to watch.”
